Creating a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene in education

Cleanliness and hygiene is paramount within the educational sector where young people are involved. Ensuring that pupils are safe and healthy is the top concern and having a clean and safe learning environment is key for development success. Those that are involved with cleaning school premises need to ensure that they follow the correct procedures within the school policy.


'A clean school creates a positive learning environment.' - Education Business Magazine.

Hygiene and sanitation regulations in schools is key to ensure that your staff are following the correct health-related policy. All educational settings need to be aware of the importance of cleanliness and hygiene for their pupils.  

Ofsted, and ensuring that schools are following Section 3 of The Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements Framework is essential to receive a high standard from the board. 

We understand how important it is to fight bacteria within an educational environment. Classrooms are the biggest harbourer of bacteria with multiple individuals using the space everyday. Although not all bacteria is harmful, many are. As there are multiple shared surfaces within the environment bacteria can thrive and spread, this is why creating a clean environment is key to reducing serious risks.

Our product range includes; traditional wooden cleaning products, commercial and everyday tools and the most advanced hygiene cleaning tools, using an anti-microbial agent infused within the products, preventing the growth of bacteria by up to 99.99%.

Colour Coding Systems

Colour coded cleaning equipment has become standard practice - products with matching coloured handles and heads can be identified quickly and easily, which is especially important within workplaces where a number of languages are spoken and can greatly reduce the possibility of cross-contamination.

The colour coding system is ideal for use in school kitchens and other areas where food is prepared. Below you will find key information on the recognised principles of HACCP colour coding: 12ColoursWheel-01
