With us having to ensure hand washing is frequent during the school day, we are thinking about the issues of hand soap/gel. Obviously soap is more effective. But, we aren’t blessed with a large Number of sinks. Getting the children to wash their hands with soap and water with a bubble of 15 children during partial opening was taking around 10 to 15 minutes each time. This is obviously going to bleed into curriculum time. If we were to use soap and water at the beginning of the day, before lunch, and before leaving to go home, and then use hand sanitiser during the in between times, what are people’s thoughts on this? Would we need to get parental consent? If children were to bring in their own hand sanitiser would we have to ensure it had an alcohol content of 60% or above? How do you ensure that children are washing their hands correctly with soap and water whilst in the toilets? It’s all very complicated! Any thoughts or advice welcome, thanks in advance.
