Playful Playtimes in Schools

Icon Video

These examples share how the Outdoor Play and Learning Primary Programme (OPAL) sustainably improves the quality of school’s play opportunities, both across the school day and beyond. OPAL is the only programme of its kind that has been independently proven to sustainably improve the quality of play in primary schools, embedding play into school’s policies and practices.

The results can be transformational in even the most challenging school environments. You can find out more about how Playful Places Associates support OPAL Schools on our Services Page.

The Opal youtube channel has several 2-3 minute films:
