Outdoor Play and Learning for Schools
"Playtimes are better with OPAL - OPAL supports primary schools to dramatically improve the quality of day-to-day play times, with a consequent beneficial impact on lunchtime behaviour, engagement, learning, personal development and physical activity/literacy."
Clutton Primary School are excited to be part of this learning opportunity and look forward to joining with you in this partnership of discovery.
OPAL at Clutton Primary School:
AIM: Every child to be engaged in play, building their own worlds and directing their own actions.
AIM: To provide playful, self directed experiential learning.
AIM: 20% of schooltime is play. This equates to 1 day of the school week, or 1.2 - 1.4 years of time at primary school.
OPAL helps support schools and staff in making that 20% of the day 100% better.

to create new pathways and therefore learning" OPAL
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the forest school
launch at the end of Term 4
- we all had such a great time and we hope you did too.
We look forward to sharing more forest school developments with you soon.
With money raised by the tireless efforts of the school PTFA and school community, volunteers, staff and children have worked so hard in bringing the sandpit project to life.
Last week the children enjoyed playing in the new area for the first time.
This is another step forward in the OPAL project plan. Well done everyone.
"I think I enjoyed it more than the children!! "
