The prime minister has promised funding of £1bn for school building projects across England. This money is being used primarily for rebuilding school buildings in disrepair. This is good news, however the question remains on whether this budget will also cover the demands of providing a safe environment for pupils and teachers in a world post COVID-19.
Safe distancing and stricter hygiene are very real concerns as schools aim to go back in September. Providing pupils with a ready supply of clean drinking water is still paramount. So how do schools ensure the drinking water they provide for pupils is safe?
You may have been hearing a lot about UV light over the past few days, specifically because the US President suggested it to treat coronavirus patients.
