Less than 30% of parents confident about the levels of cleanliness in schools

With UK wide lockdowns continuing the focus has shifted to keeping schools, colleges and Universities open. There is a renewed concern with regards to the cleaning and hygiene routines in the education sector.

A survey about how Covid-19 has affected perceptions of cleanliness and hygiene in the education sector, conducted by Harris Interactive during the first lockdown, revealed that only 31% were comfortable about sending children back to school and 86% would avoid an education facility if they didn’t think it was Covid-secure.

According to the research, more than two-thirds (69%) perceived going to a school or nursery as high to moderate risk, while 72% perceived going to a college/university as high to moderate risk.
