Children study Barefoot at Primary School in UK

Primary school children have been told to wear only socks for lessons after shoes were banned in an attempt to improve children’s results.

Holmbush Primary School in Shoreham, West Sussex, declared that children should study barefoot after the school’s ‘Learning Council’, made up of Year Six pupils, found that ‘shoeless classrooms’ could help pupils learn.

After a trial, which was deemed successful by children and staff, the 240-pupil school’s governors agreed to make the policy official, and Holmbush became a ‘shoeless school’ in January this year.
