New government guidance says teachers should distance themselves from each other and older students when a full return to school takes place in September. The advice says secondary school staff who need to move between classes and year groups should try and keep their distance “as much as they can” – and ideally at two metres from other adults.
Older children should be kept apart from other groups and staff where possible, and they should be encouraged to keep their distance within groups.
The advice comes as the Government has announced that schools will be told to keep children in class or year-group-sized “bubbles”.
In a warning to parents, the guidance said full attendance and full curriculum is expected.
