Teachers and students alike have had so much to contend with over the past 18 months. There have been lockdowns where they were only open for key workers, home schooling, isolations and bubbles to prevent mixing. All of this has taken a huge amount of planning and preparation.
Many are wondering what the next 12 months are going to hold but the truth is we simply do not know. It is likely that when the schools return in September all the social distancing rules may have been lifted so bubbles will be scrapped allowing the children to mix once again. This means that whole school assemblies can now take place again and staggered start and finish times are likely to be dropped. Schools may still have a say as to what rules they want to keep in place and when so you will need to check what is going to be in place for your child’s school.
Although it may be a worrying time for many as the social distancing rules get scrapped, it will be nice for the pupils and the teachers to be able to get back to some sort of normality again and fingers crossed there will be no further lockdowns.
