Free infection prevention & control training and resources to support your science and PSHE curriculum


The county council is offering free e-Bug training for Gloucestershire primary schools.

The programme is designed to improve hand hygiene, respiratory hygiene and antibiotic use.

What you get

A 2.5 hour training session covering:

  • info on microbes, hygiene and health
  • lesson plans and pupil worksheets
  • fun activities and a starter pack of goodies

What's in it for you?

  • Increase your knowledge of hygiene practice all round
  • Being an e-Bug approved educator counts towards your healthy schools status
  • The e-Bug modules cover science curriculum topics in a fun and interactive way
  • Protect staff and students from illness and reduce absences

Why are we doing it?

The pupil survey shows that children don't wash their hands enough. This programme will help them understand how important hygiene is for health, as well as raising the profile of the issue in school and at home.
