Public Health England have produced a free infection prevention education resource called 'e-Bug' to help prepare for the full opening of schools in September. It includes:

  • Free e-learning to help you teach children and young people about microbes and how to prevent the spread of infection.
  • An e-storybook to read with younger children to help them understand new COVID-19 protective measures and tackle anxiety about returning to school.
  • Posters, lesson plans and activities to teach about hand and respiratory hygiene in an engaging and age-appropriate way.

You can also read the Department for Education's wider guidance on the full opening of schools.
