Have you taken the necessary steps and preventive measures in your education and childcare settings?

These are challenging times, with measures put in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and to keep everyone safe. As we have now past the peak of the virus, the Government has set out a recovery strategy. As part of the strategy, they have announced from this week (week commencing 1st June) the phased return of children to nurseries, schools and colleges.

Government guidance on implementing protective measures in education and childcare settings

Amongst other key steps laid out in the attached document they have advised;

  1. Planning and Organising

Schools are encouraged to organise small class groups, maintain a good distance of space between seats and desks where possible, stagger assembly groups, stagger break times and to stagger drop-off and collection times to minimise adult to adult contact. 

  1. Cleaning and Storing of Excess Educational Toys

In addition, childcare settings or early years groups in schools should consider how educational toys and play equipment are used ensuring it is appropriately cleaned between groups of children using it, and that multiple groups do not use it at the same time.

Additionally, removing unnecessary items from classrooms and other learning environments where there is space to store it elsewhere as well as removing soft furnishings, soft toys and toys which are hard to clean (such as those with intricate parts).
