Case 70 - School bans yo-yos on health and safety grounds

Issue

A school has banned the use of yo-yos on health and safety grounds.

Panel decision

There is no health and safety law which bans yo-yos from schools. Whilst there will always be some risk of yo-yos being misused and causing minor injuries, it seems to us to be a disproportionate response to ban them from the school.
