What measures are schools taking to protect staff and children who are in from tomorrow?

We are educators not public health or infection control specialists. This is totally new ground for us all.
What, if any, measures are being brought in at your school to protect those who are in next week? Has anyone spoke to their Union? Has any guidance been issued?
Is your school providing masks or gloves? Are they deep cleaning?
Thought we could maybe shares ideas here ...

I'm a school cleaner. There are only two of us doing our utmost to keep the school clean, the others are self isolating. Wiping down touch points regularly as well as keeping up with usual jobs. No deep clean.
We were shattered when we locked up on Friday.

I’m trying to figure out what good gloves and masks would do.

If you’re wearing gloves, you’re still touching the surfaces and then potentially touching your face, the only difference is you’re wearing a glove when you do it. Surely washing your hands very regularly would be better?

I thought face masks only helped in that if you were ill and coughed, it didn’t spray the virus. If you’re coughing you shouldn’t be in school. Unless you’re suggesting the kids wear masks too? I don’t think they are available?

I think stay 2m away, wash hands regularly, stay at home if you are ill (the kids too) and don’t touch your face is reasonable?

We will be having our children in the hall, spread 2m apart. Regular handwashing.
As much time out on the field as possible - more space less to touch.
We are a 1 form entry rural school and will have 25% of our children in. A skeleton staff on a rota so hopefully enough of us stay healthy to provide the service for the duration. having to use a hub would mean a long, possibly impossible, commute for our keyworker parents.
