Social distancing will not be applied in schools and “bubbles” will be expanded to enable all pupils to return to their classes full-time in September, the Government will announce next week.
Pupils will not be expected to keep two metres or even one metre apart at all times while in the school building, The Telegraph understands.
Instead, schools will be asked to focus on limiting the extent to which children mix outside of their class or year group and on implementing strict hygiene regimes.
The solution to reopening schools will involve groups of children being placed in “bubbles”- as is already the case in primaries – and is seen by the Government as removing the need for social distancing.
