Hygiene and health in schools with Essity - NAPE 059
Essity is a global leader in hygiene and health. Since 2017 they have been actively working to improve hygiene and health standards and education within UK schools.
National Association for Primary Education started working in collaboration with Essity in 2018 to highlight and support this venture.
'With our partners we collaborate in gathering knowledge and insights, using our different perspectives, collective competences and resources, to find solutions to societal challenges and drive global change in for example raising hygiene and health standards, thereby improving well-being and the lives of millions worldwide.
In 2018 we educated about 2.5 million people about hygiene and health, including teaching children the importance of hand hygiene, young women about puberty as well as educating people and staff at nursing homes about incontinence.'
The National Association for Primary Education has an online conference on 8th March 2021 entitled:
Virtual Conference – Monday 8th March 2021, 4.15pm-6.45pm
The Conference, embracing a theme which has always been central to debate about children’s entitlements, has been highlighted by OfSTED as critical in curriculum development and its central importance has been further accentuated by the pressures under which primary schools are working in the post-lockdown phase as they prioritise what is perceived as essential in educational recovery.
The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on children’s education may be perceived as a justification for narrowing the curriculum at the expense of the arts and the humanities, but this conference will explore the case for preserving young children’s entitlement to as rich and diverse a curriculum as possible. Dr. Eaude’s keynote lecture will set the scene, highlighting some key issues and considering some lessons to be learnt from the period of lockdown. The subsequent presentations will focus on classroom practice, providing a spotlight on innovations which have been implemented in school and offering guidance for the future.
All are most welcome at this event, including teachers, teacher assistants, governors and students and it’s our hope that the conference will play its part in bringing together a range of stakeholders in primary education, all with a commitment to enhancing children’s entitlement to a balanced and broadly-based curriculum.
