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).
