Heard the latest ban on the grounds of "health & safety"?
Kids from wearing football boots, whilst playing...erm...football.
Some school* in South-East London has sent parents a letter stating: "For health and safety reasons, children will not be allowed to wear trainers or football boots." Instead they were requested to bring school PE kit with plimsolls to the training course.
A statement was issued: "Our main concern was that the studs could cause injury to the children."
Righty ho, so what reason for banning trainers then?
*Bedonwell Primary School for those that really need to know.
