Prison yard or playground? Primary school reveals social distancing plan with children as young as four playing in hula-hoop ‘bubbles’, time slots for toilet breaks and NO help from teachers if they fall or wet themselves’

A primary school has sparked fury among parents after it revealed its social distancing plan, which would see children as young as four playing in hula-hoop ‘bubbles’, pupils being given set times to go to the toilet and students being told to clean up their own cuts if they fall over.

Holywell Village First School in Northumberland, has come under fire over the plans, which they have suggested will be put into place when pupils return to the classroom on June 1.

‘We have sourced PPE (following the COVID 19 guidance for Educational Settings) which is for use only for staff protection should a child vomit, not for trips, falls or scrapes.

‘If it is not possible for the child to clean themselves in the event of an accident, the parent will be called to collect them so they can do that at home.’ …
