The Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) project is an award-winning, mentor supported programme that is supporting us to improve the quality of our play opportunities. OPAL is the only programme of its kind that has been independently proven to sustainably improve the quality of play in British primary schools.
Our school vision is for learning to be a rich and exciting experience and this applies to both academic learning and learning through play. As playtimes make up 20% of the school week, it is important to provide our children with lots of opportunities to engage with. We believe a positive play experience enhances a child's emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
Our play policy details how we run our playtimes.
