Schools ‘forced’ to narrow choices
Whenever we look back we realise that some things we did were mistakes. The most important thing, as teachers, we tell our pupils, is to learn from your mistakes.

Regular physical activity has been linked to improved physical health, improved mental wellbeing and academic attainment. However, today’s children are the least active generation in history. Fewer than one in four young children in the UK get the recommended amount of exercise, which means that millions of kids are missing out on the benefit of sport and play.
