Personally I find this really stupid. If I am in year 12 and have a sibling in year 8, if someone in year 12 contracts coronavirus, I would be expected to self-isolate, but my sibling would be expected to return to school? I know it’s very difficult to get schools back but this doesn’t seem well thought through.

They’ve said year groups will not have to social distance in classrooms but elsewhere (where possible and doesn’t prevent students from returning) to stay 1m apart

There are only two government ministers capable of any sort of planning- Rishi Sunak and Grant Shapps.

The government should have been looking to bring non-school buildings into use so some pupils could be taught elsewhere, to reduce contact and enable social distancing. There are halls, theatres not in use, empty shops, libraries and other buildings that could be used. There has been 3 months so far to identify these buildings.

If this government had been in charge in 1940, the Nazis would have successfully invaded England.

Completely agree! Boris Johnson isn’t fit to supervise a Tesco never mind a country. He has had ample opportunity to find these alternative provisions but this is the best he could come up with. He must be one of the most incapable prime ministers Britain has had.

Wait so that means students could be taught outside the classroom to enable social distancing? :confused:

HK students are back to school for a month. We had half-day school, ending at 1pm, and avoided contact sport for PE. Some schools also arranged for different year groups to arrive at different times.

From what I understand, students will not social distance at all when being taught as lessons will continue to take place in classrooms. However during breaks and outside of school, 1m social distancing is advised (which doesn’t make sense if your not social distancing during lessons.

Yep - he hasn’t known what he was doing since his the pandemic started (and long before that! )

Is this for years 10 and 12? In September when all years return, they did say that different year groups would arrive at different times to allow ‘year group bubbles’.

For HK, all students returned in three phases from 27 May to 15 June. My school does not do this, and I had to take a crowded bus back home (there is another school next to mine, and there are 200 people waiting at the bus stop every day).
