BRAKESPEARE: Liverpool playground football ban is nothing new - one Fenland school brought in ban 6-7 years ago
WHAT goes round comes around, as a website for parents reveals this week during a debate over a Liverpool primary school where pupils have been banned from playing football in the playground after teachers branded them dangerous.
In a letter to parents, the school said: “Please can we request that only sponge balls are brought into school. This is to ensure the safety of all our pupils when on the playground.”
Mavis from Chatteris was quick to remind her parenting friends online that banning of football was nothing new.
“Football was banned in the playground of Glebelands School in Chatteris about 6-7 years ago,” she said. “The head teacher thought it was a risk to other pupils if the boys played football.
“She didn’t mind the girls using skipping ropes which to my mind is more likely to hurt someone who got in the way.
