With the start of the new academic year, the UK government has introduced the “PPE for Schools” initiative to ensure the safety of students, teachers, and staff in educational institutions. As concerns about COVID-19 persist, this program aims to provide free Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to schools across the country.

Under the initiative, schools can access a variety of PPE supplies, including face masks, hand sanitizers, and disinfectants, to help maintain a safe learning environment. The move is in response to the rising demand for protective gear in educational settings, as well as the need to protect vulnerable populations.

Schools are encouraged to apply for the program to receive essential PPE supplies, which will be distributed through regional channels. This initiative is part of the government’s broader efforts to support the safe reopening of schools and minimize disruptions to education during the ongoing pandemic.
