Pupils made to wear goggles to handle Blu Tack19th June 2009
According to a survey of almost 600 teachers, children are being asked to put on goggles when handling Blu Tack at school.
These and other rules were exposed in the survey. A spokesman for the Department for Children, Schools and Families said: "We urge schools to take a commonsense approach to keeping safe. Health and safety should not be a major burden and it shouldn't stop pupils from learning and playing. A small amount of risk is part and parcel of growing up and we do not subscribe to a cotton wool culture-of a sanitised childhood."
