CO2 monitors guidance and resources

11 Jan 2022

Imperial College London have released materials available on CoSchools website to support classroom staff with wintertime ventilation.

The materials explain how to best use the CO2 monitors sent by the Department for Education and describe some of the potential benefits. There is also material to help school leaders train their classroom staff. The materials include:

  • 4 videos explaining and motivating the use of CO2 monitors in classrooms,
  • A simple table of the relevant CO2 levels, with a description, suggested actions, and potential consequences for each,
  • An A4 poster which you can print and laminate to sit alongside the monitors in class (editable versions provided),
  • A presentation which you can edit and use as a base for inset training on classroom ventilation in the context of COVID mitigation.
