A Primary School in Buckinghamshire has taken a bold step in not allowing children to spend any part of the school day alone, in fear that it is “self-exclusionary”, and puts children at risk of finding their identity, finding their personality and becoming independent, functioning people.
“Self-exclusion is a very real issue”, says psychologist, Dr. Idiota. “Children are very much encouraged to be part of a community, and spending more than just one minute on their own can ruin their life forever.”
It seems now you cannot do anything at school – recently, schools begun to ban pupils labelling each other ‘best friends’ for fear of children being left out, and now children are not allowed to spend time alone, even if it is there choice.
“I just want to sit in the reading room and read books, but as no one else does, I’m not allowed to be in here alone and have to interact. I don’t want that.” Said one upset student.
