Allow children in the same "bubble" at school to gather in groups of more than 6

Petition Details

Children in the same year group bubble should be exempt from the Rule of 6 (as with families and support bubbles), to allow leisure activities and visits to businesses or outdoor spaces together.

If anyone from outside the school bubble is present, the Rule of 6 should still apply, as before.

Additional Information

Current rules permit students in the same year group to be at school in large groups without social distancing - but it is illegal for them to be outside of school in groups of more than six.

This leads to an unpleasant situation - students are only able to see their group of friends during school time, excessively limiting their interactions with those who are important to them.
