What Do The New Government Guidelines Mean for the Safety of Schools?

What Do The New Government Guidelines Mean for the Safety of Schools?

Part of the recent government announcement on how the country is going to come out of lockdown stated that schools would be one of the first venues to be opened in order for the country to start to get back on its feet. As of March 8th, every student is planned to return to school, alongside teachers and other members of the school.

When schools returned previously, so-called “bubbles” were created, so children could learn and mix with fellow pupils. Large assemblies or collective worship should not include more than one group during things such as masses, with break and lunchtimes being staggered to keep bubbles apart. Ensuring these “distinct groups do not mix” makes it quicker and easier to identify contacts if a positive COVID case emerges or someone is showing symptoms. This again will be the case in schools as it is the best system for separation.
