On the podcast this week I talk to Peter Cansell – NAPE Information Officer about how they are working with Essity to try and improve hygiene standards in school toilets.
Last year Essity founded and launched the School Hygiene Essentials Initiative which is a collaboration of hygiene, health and education experts who are working together to try and improve hygiene standards in school toilets and improve hygiene education for children.
Partners in the School Hygiene Essentials Initiative include the National Association for Primary Education (NAPE), the School and Public Health Nurses Association (SAPHNA), childrens’ bladder and bowel charity ERIC, the Paediatric Continence Forum (PCF), Bladder and Bowel UK, and In Kind Direct who help distribute essential products to community organisations including schools.
This is a good example of the collaborative work NAPE is able to do in supporting schools beyond policy and curriculum subjects.
The National Association for Primary Education speaks for young children and all who live and work with them. This includes parents, teachers, governors and all those interested in primary education. NAPE is a non-political charity and works tirelessly to support teachers in the classroom as expressed in their ‘Value of Membership’ Document. NAPE leads the Primary Umbrella Group of thirty primary subject associations and unions and gives teachers and schools a voice at governmental level at consultative meetings with ministers for schools.
