The OPAL Project

What is the OPAL Play Project?

Ladysmith Schools Federation aims to improve the play environment for children and help them make the most of their play times.

Thanks to funding from Ladysmith’s Children, Parents, Teachers Together (CPTT), the Infant School has embarked on the Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) Primary Programme. This is a mentor supported school improvement programme, which addresses all of the areas the school must plan for to strategically and sustainably improve the quality of play opportunities. OPAL has successfully worked with 100s of primary schools across Britain, helping them to improve the quality of play. For more information about OPAL’s work see their website:
