Ventilation in education settings

Information for parents and carers

Leaders and staff in your child’s education setting will work to ensure it is well ventilated and that a comfortable teaching environment is maintained.

If your child is educated at home please refer to the ‘Keeping homes well ventilated section’ of the support for residents page.

Measures will be undertaken to improve fresh air flow in poorly ventilated areas and particular consideration given when holding events where visitors such as parents are on site, for example, school plays.

CO2 monitors are being provided to all state-funded education settings, together with full details of how to use them, to help keep teaching environments well ventilated.

For further information please refer to the Government website or contact your child’s education setting directly.
