‘Nurturing Individual Excellence’



Over the past few weeks and months, we have been developing our outdoor play and learning provision to enhance the quality and variety of our children's lunchtimes. From dressing up clothes to small-world play and adventurous equipment, OPAL is all about providing opportunities for the children to be creative, take managed risks and explore the world through play.

January 2023

In January, children across the school had an exciting time at lunchtime, making a variety of items using the snow. There were snow figures, snow angels, and gigantic balls of snow!

A Thank You to Marshalls

Over the summer holidays, we were very privileged to receive considerable support from Marshall's, a company responsible for the manufacture and sale of a variety of construction materials. Their contribution enabled us to massively improve the provision of outdoor play and learning, with exciting features added to our school site which have enriched the opportunities available to all our children. As a small token of thanks, we have produced a short video. Please click on the link below to view:

Our children have been enjoying lunchtimes this year by making use of a fantastic range of play opportunities. Over the summer, we were gifted items which Mr. Pickin has used to create some truly wonderful play pieces on the playground and field, enriching the playtimes of all of our children.

We have received some fantastic items to enrich our outdoor play and learning provision. Many thanks to everyone who has offered donations.



Our children have been busy making the most of our outdoor area through building snow characters during the recent cold weather and forming a leaf fort.
