Infection Control

Guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings

The document within the link below provides guidance from Public Health England for schools and other childcare settings, such as nurseries, on infection control issues. It is an updated version of guidance that was produced in 2010.

The guidance aims to prevent the spread of infections by ensuring:

  • routine immunisations
  • high standards of personal hygiene and practice, particularly handwashing
  • maintaining a clean environment
