Use e-Bug to prepare for the start of the new school year

The Department for Education have recently published “Guidance for full opening: schools”, recommending Public Health England’s free infection prevention education resource ‘e-Bug’.

Use e-Bug to prepare for the full opening of Schools in September by:

  • completing free e-learning to improve knowledge and confidence to teach children and young people about microbes and how to prevent the spread of infection
  • displaying ‘Hand hygiene’ and ‘Cover coughs and sneezes’ posters in bathrooms, handwashing stations, classrooms and shared spaces
  • sharing “My Back to School Bubble” e-storybook for parents/carers to read with younger children to help them understand new COVID-19 protective measures and tackle anxiety about returning to school
  • using lesson plans/activities to teach about hand and respiratory hygiene in an engaging and age-appropriate way

All resources are free and can be accessed from e-Bug’s COVID-19 webpage.
