We know that playtimes are an integral part of our pupils' school experience and learning.
We have developed ways to ensure that playtimes are positive, enjoyable and supportive for all of our pupils:
KS2 Peer Mentors
"We teach other children new games."
"If we see someone has hurt their head, we find an adult."
"We are role models. That means showing how to follow the school rules."
"Some little children get upset and so I help them sort out the problem."
Mrs Farmer - Higher Level Teaching Assistant & Lunchtime Lead
Mrs Farmer leads on ensuring that playtimes are positive for all pupils and staff. She listens to feedback and with School Leaders, celebrates successes and puts forward ways to improve.
Teaching Support Staff
Our teaching Support Staff are on duty with the pupils at lunchtimes. This ensures that adults who know the pupils well, can feedback to class teachers and families are always present in the playground.
We have equipment activities in the Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), climbing equipment, an outdoor classroom and lots of spaces to sit, move and play.
