Hi Peter,

I’d echo your points in this post wholeheartedly. As someone who also teaches in an all-boys school, I would have similar experiences. Those children that do not engage in football often tend to be at a loose end during yard times. Our student council have attempted to provide some organised games for these pupils and it has been met with a great response. Teaching in a single-sex school can often make it more challenging to break down these barriers, as there are few opportunities to learn or tease out what happened during a particular event, comment, etc.
