our programmes

Zero Days

A new educational programme,

developed by the hygiene & behavioural change experts from elite INEOS sport teams, in consultation with a national teacher focus group. 

The aims

Encourage students to normalise good hygiene practice using sports stars as role models


Support behaviour changes by empowering young people through education


Provide a range of resources for use around school to promote safe learning environments for all pupils. 


Reduce the number of days lost to preventable illness to zero, so students can continue to learn.

The impact


Launched by Sir Ben Ainslie on Sky Breakfast and to >3M on social media


2,500 disadvantaged young people (11-13) took part

75 %+

75%+ young people reported improvement in confidence, resilience communication and decision-making.  

“We have used the excellent ZERO Days video in every assembly for all our pupils.

The use of sporting heroes such as Lewis Hamilton, has really motivated students to take notice and pay attention to what they are being asked to do with new hygiene rules.

Reassuring our students that school is safe.”

Headteacher, Elaine Heaphy
