Pupils at a High School in Greater Manchester have been banned from hugging, high-fiving or shaking hands with each other with a strict ‘no contact’ rule. ‘No student should ever be touching another student,’ the school head Andrea Din announced in the latest newsletter. A pupil at the school commented publicly on Facebook saying: ‘I’m a current student at this school and I was in a lesson and I hurt my fingers. My friend sat next to me had to ask my teacher for permission to hug me.’ In its announcement, the school added: ‘To further improve our school culture, there is now a no contact rule in place. This means that no student should ever be touching another student. ‘No carrying of other students, cuddling, or play fighting will be tolerated. Is this rule going too far?
