School becomes first to build its own scooter park

A school plagued by bad pupil behaviour has seen a drastic change in results after becoming the first in the UK to build its own SCOOTER race track. Pupils have been urged to use the specially designed track at break times in a bid to “burn off energy” following a spate of discipline problems. The school took the decision last year after Ofsted inspectors downgraded the 360-pupil, aged 7-11, from a ‘good’ rating to ‘requires improvement’. After securing £25,000 in grants, Wilnecote Junior School near Tamworth, Staffs., is the first in the UK to have its own scooter track.
