Play (OPAL)

"Play is what I do when everyone else stops telling me what to do."

We achieved a platinum grading for our OPAL offer at Longlands!

See below for more information by clicking on the Opal award document.

At Longlands we are embarking on a very exciting program called Opal (Outdoor Play and Learning) which is going to totally change the play opportunities for children at lunch and break times. Children spend 20% of their time at school at play and we are committed to make that the best it can possibly be. The children's resilience, imagination, friendships and happiness will all improve over the course of this project.

Importance of Outdoor Play

The children in School Council made a Play Charter which the whole school have agreed to follow.
