end of bubble system in schools

Written by on 7 July 2021

The top education boss at Staffordshire County Council has welcomed new Covid-19 measures for schools.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson announced that July 19 will see the end of the ‘bubble’ system for schools, where children are isolated due to being classed as a close contact of a positive case.

Social distancing, the wearing of face masks and staggered starts will also end when children return to school in September.

Secondary schools will need to conduct 2 on-site lateral flow tests at the start of term, with twice weekly home testing required afterwards. This practice will be reviewed before the end of September.
