Healthy schools project supports school toilet award

  • Comment

The Albany Healthy Schools programme has announced it is supporting the new School Toilet Award. The award recognises and rewards schools that look after pupils’ health by caring for their toilets.

The award was developed in response to a recent survey of 160 UK schools and 49 school and specialist nurses, which revealed a universal call for minimum standards for school toilet facilities. Lack of funding, the absence of regulations and the fact some schools don’t recognise the importance of adequate toilet facilities for pupils means that facilities can vary drastically from school to school.

Schools that take care to ensure that their toilets are cleaned properly, are well stocked and in good working order, are being encouraged to enter. All successful schools will receive an award certificate and use of the award logo on marketing materials.

  • Schools can enter by completing a self assessment form along with a questionnaire on www.bog-standard.org
