Nanny Bans Bulldog

Conker Suit

A survey conducted by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL) highlighted the fact that 29% of those teachers surveyed had said that British Bulldog (a chasing game) had been banned in their schools.

Additionally, 14% said that pupils were banned from playing conkers and 9% said that pupils were not allowed to play leapfrog.

It is completely potty that schools have become so risk averse. Wrapping children in cotton wool in this manner means that they never develop a healthy attitude to risk management, or are able to cope in a mature way when things go wrong (as they always do in the real world).

    A quick look at the Alliances that cause so much misery for smokers.

  2. Would it be allowed if it was European Bulldog? Just wondering.

    I can remember playing conkers at school when I was a lad.....I can remember getting hit on the knuckles by a wayward shot from my opponent on a very cold morning, not a pleasant experience but, I got over it and it taught me a valuable lesson; don't let someone hit you on the knuckles with a conker because it hurts.
    Wrapping kids up in cottonwool actually makes them less risk aware and this WILL be a handicap for them in the future.

  4. That figure of 29% banning British Bulldig is a big fat lie. It's been banned outright in every state school for decades to such an extent that perhaps, like not stabbing people in the face, it no longer requires a formal ban of its own.

    It's not only a great pity that such activities have been banned, but a national disgrace! I am sure that whilst minor injuries did occur, playing such games wasn't anywhere near as lethal as the elf'n'safety gestapo would have us believe. By banning any activities with even the smallest risk of minor injury, how will today's children cope when through accident they do actualy injure themselves?
