SCHOOLS AND EDUCATION
The importance of drinking water fountains for schools and education facilities has become a focal point over the past few years. Providing students with easy access to clean drinking water is increasingly seen as important as providing good quality food during the day.
Educational facilities within the UK have a very low base of drinking water facilities in place for both students and teachers. Drinking Water Fountains has been working over many years to establish a range of drinking water fountains for schools, sinks and coolers that are ideally suited to the demanding needs of the educational sector.
Our solutions range from mini drinking fountains suitable for primary schools through to fountains with vandal proof taps. Our water solutions can provide schools with simple and cost effective ways for students to access safe, clean drinking water during the day at school.
We also offer a range of drinking water bottles that can be customised and branded for the school. The installation of drinking fountains is the first stage to encouraging students to drink water on a daily basis and it is important for schools to look to educate children to use the facilities.
Some facts about water provision in schools and educational facilities.
- A fifth of UK school children drink no water during a day at school
- 10% schools have no separate drinking facilities
- Drinking water fountains or taps are mostly situated in toilets and not near to children when they most need water
- 10-year-olds need 1.75 litres of water per day to maintain stability and not become dehydrated.
- Low fluid intake causes headaches, poor concentration, constipation, tiredness
