Dear Parents and Carers
As part of your child’s school life, we endeavor to educate children in a wide range of different areas. One of these areas is good health and hygiene.
We would like to ask your support with this, in particular, with regard to the issues of toilet use.
We have a large number of young children in Foundation and Key Stage One and some children are finding the appropriate use of toilets difficult. This has resulted in a number of children finding it difficult to use the toilets as they are not always left in a pleasant state, despite our monitoring and cleaning of them.
We always try to reinforce with the children the need to;
Ÿ Ensure all toilet paper is placed down the toilet
Ÿ Flush the toilet after use
Ÿ Wash their hands after using the toilet
Ÿ Place paper towels in the bins provided
Ÿ Leave the toilet in a state they would wish to use it (ie. clean and flushed)
Ÿ Inform an adult if they have an accident or need help
We do appreciate that this may seem an unusual request but your support with reinforcing these basic areas of hygiene would be very much appreciated in order that we can ensure that all children can use the school’s facilities appropriately and hygienically.
Thanking you, as always, for your ongoing support. Yours Sincerely,
Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 Teachers
