Ventilation at School

Public Health Advice states that good ventilation is key to preventing the spread of infection

  • Windows in school will be open a small amount all day to provide constant air circulation
  • In warmer weather, windows will be open wide all day
  • Where it is safe, doors will also be open 
  • When children are at break or lunch, all windows and doors in classrooms will be opened fully to refresh the air completely
  • We will do our utmost to balance comfort with good ventilation levels but the building will be colder than normal 
  • We will also be trying to get outside whenever we can
  • Please ensure your child has plenty of layers that they can put on over their uniform ( e.g. hoodies or gilet) and a warm waterproof coat for outdoors
  • It also helps if children wear thermal layers under their uniform (staff do!)
