Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL)
We are pleased to announce that Headlands CE (C) JIN School is an ‘Opal’ (Outdoor Play and Learning) School. We are working hard to improve our pupils’ experiences of playtimes and lunchtimes as we recognise that playtimes form approximately 20% of a child’s school day and are incredibly valuable.
OPAL is an award-winning, mentor supported school improvement programme that addresses all the areas that schools must plan for if they want to improve the quality of their play opportunities. OPAL is the only programme of its kind that has been independently proven to sustainably improve the quality of play in British primary schools.
