Hand Hygiene

Hand Hygiene

The DfE guidance continues to recommend that hands should be thoroughly cleaned more often than usual, with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitiser.


Pupils should clean their hands regularly, including:

  • When they arrive at school
  • When they return from breaks
  • Before and after eating
  • Before they leave the school premises
  • After visiting the toilet


If pupil’s hands become dry due to the additional hand washing they are permitted to bring a tube of hand cream into school for their own use.
