School without play area bans break times

"Pupils at a new school will not be allowed break times and will have no playground to run around on. Authorities claim it would be impossible to control the 2,200 pupils, aged between 11 and 18, were they allowed to run around a playground at break time. The timetable will also be arranged so that there will be no break times and only a 30-minute lunch period. Sarah Teather, the Liberal Democrat education spokesman, said: "I am stunned. This does not sound like a school, it sounds like some nightmarish Government exam factory."
