She found that the experience of breaktime was affected by the greater likelihood that children from the inner city school would go out at lunchtime (‘gating’), whilst the rural children could not. There was no difference in reported bullying or fighting, but urban teachers were more likely than rural teachers to report fighting in the playground. Urban children were more likely to say they smoked; two admitted to getting ‘stoned’. There were differences in games played.
