Are you enforcing social distancing within the key worker bubble or not?
I agree it shouldn't be enforced within the key worker bubble.
In our local school children in the key worker group share resources, play together and eat lunch in the dining hall with staff and staff don't try to distance if children try to hug them.
My friend has to send her child there as she is a key worker. My two children will have to go back next week as I work for the NHS and I am going back from night shifts to day shifts.
Can anyone else share what is happening at their primary school?
Primary school teachers are probably at work.
They can reply later then.
In the past we have had "posters" that have had conversations with themselves by having more than one, indeed several, posting identities, but not one where the OP answers him/herself!
We do enforce social distancing in our secondary school, I wouldn't be there if we didn't.
This is a thread to advertise your stupidity.
Fill your boots people.
It's impossible for key workers in hospitals to socially distance, the buildings are too cramped. That's why they have access (in theory) to testing.
My wife has been redeployed to a hospital and she's been told off by busybodies for eating lunch with people she's been inside 2m of all day anyway.
They also have PPE. Or should have.
If you are concerned, why not contact your children’s school as a more appropriate source of information?
When we open on 15th there will be rigorous SD in place. There will be zero SD in place on the buses and on the roads to and from school. None whatever.
Same as above - they are in the hall all day and social distance where possible. Lots of hand washing.
I think it will always depend on the nature of the bubble. If you have (as at my local school) most of the kids being year 6, then they will probably be good at helping the younger kids keep distance as they will (should) set a good example.
If the bubble is more infant school based there will be.....trouble.
I'm secondary and our KW children are socially distanced in school, where they do the work the others are doing at home.
Are you working all days? I don't know if this is standard practice but the local school tells keyworker parents they can only use the service when at work, rather than because you are a keyworker.
This led to friction as a doctor explained he does 3 x 12 hour shifts but never turns down a call to help the other two days, which he invariably does. He wanted the kid cared for so he could do that.
Not sure how they resolved it, will try to find out.
Yes we do have PPE.
I am currently working 5 days a week.
