Advice on hygiene and cleaning for school grounds and equipment outdoors
This page has a series of sections, offering guidance on the hygiene and cleaning practices for school grounds and outdoor spaces.
We have used formal guidance from the World Health Organisation and the UK Government. Where possible we have included source documents or links.
Additionally, we have suggested how this will work in practice, through ideas for implementing the guidance.
We recommend that all decisions are made through a risk-benefit approach – understanding that no risk can be reduced to zero, and outdoors already offers a safer place than indoors for our staff and learner at present. Any risk-benefit assessment therefore must start with a more beneficial view of outdoor spaces than indoor spaces as we consider Covid-19.
