Introduction to OPAL
OPAL stands for Outdoor Play and Learning and is a programme endorsed and supported by Sport England.
OPAL's mission statement is "To ensure that every schoolchild has an amazing playtime every day with no exceptions."
We aim to:
- improve well-being
- develop self-regulation
- increase physical activity
- aid social and emotional development
- learn to manage risk
- have FUN!
This programme is a journey that we're undertaking over the next 12-18 months with OPAL, developing the playground and play of the children.
As we're working towards enjoying the outdoors and our play, no matter the weather we would be grateful for donations wet weather clothing that no longer fits your children:
- water proof trousers
- large cardboard boxes
- pots and pans
Please bring to the main office any time!
Stay and Play
We love inviting you into our playground to play with your children and join us on this journey of developing our playground.
We would like to purchase some additional storage for our playground so we can have a larger variety of items available for the children to play with. We'll soon be launching a donation page for anyone that would like to help. Stay tuned...
