The Academy Selsey are following the advice of Public Health England (PHE) which can be found on the PHE website.

We continue to emphasise with both staff and pupils the importance of hand washing and hygiene, in line with the guidance about how best to prevent the spread of infection. We are taking opportunities to reinforce these messages regularly and to encourage staff and pupils to wash their hands at regular points throughout the school day.
