A headteacher has banned all pupils from physical contact at his school, including hugging.
Chris Steed of the Malcolm Arnold Academy in Northampton has brought in a “no touching” rule so that “personal space” is respected.
Of course, one expects schools to have measures in place to ensure pupils do not go round punching each other in the face, but this is ridiculous – conforming to the Left’s barmy pre-occupation with wrapping the world in cotton wool.
We would like to give Mr Steed a bit more than a hug.
