Personal Hygiene



Teachers share their experiences of and tips for broaching the sensitive issue of personal hygiene with pupils.

Personal hygiene is explicit in the curriculum in Key Stage 1 and 2, but is not tackled directly in the secondary curriculum.

Teachers from London and Birmingham share their advice for how to deal with it in the classroom, and who is the best placed member of staff to broach the issue.

They also talk about the consequences of not helping pupils to deal with the issue, from bullying to damaging their career prospects.
