Improving the prevention of infectious diseases in UK schools

 To be published April 2024

About the report

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, during which time schools were shut down and eventually re-opened in phases, studies have shown a variety of mid to long-term consequences to the health, education and social development of UK’s students. Teachers and other educational staff also reported experiencing degrees of disruption, anxiety and trauma.

To better understand what happened in UK schools, and create strong recommendations for how such events can be prevented in the future, Arctech Innovation conducted a survey to collate the experiences of headteachers, teachers and classroom assistants across the UK who were tasked with implementing government advice and taking responsibility for COVID-19 health and safety within their own schools and classrooms during the peak of the pandemic.
