Bubble woes!

Would love some thoughts from staff more in the know.

My son is keen to go back to his class (year 6) and it's taken a while for me to accept the risk (complicated). His class has 32 children in it and 30 have gone back so both bubbles of 15 are full.

He's very anxious about going into a random bubble which isn't his class - he's experienced a lot of bullying at his school.

Just wondering what to do for the best - any thoughts would be welcomed. I'm thinking we'll just wait on the off chance that someone will pull out of either of the two bubbles but that may not happen.

Thank you!

The bubbles will probably be closed. My school has said no joining bubbles, but others have different risk assessments.

You don't have a choice if he doesn't want to go into other bubbles.

You need to call your specific school.

I spoke to my DS's school this morning and asked if he could be in a bubble with his friends. They said yes because there was a space. If there wasn't I wouldn't have sent him in.. he wouldn't have fun without them.

I have a mixed age bubble from Nursery, Reception and Y1. I have taught in school for many years but not any of the children in my bubble. I have given hours and hours of thought to how I can make it work for all of them together. It’s my job to get it right - to help them to settle and feel comfortable in a different classroom with new classmates. Every teacher I know is putting the same amount of effort into making the children’s time in school happy and purposeful. Try not to worry. Xx
