Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL)

At Holy Family we understand the importance that play has on a child's development and well-being. We launched the OPAL project back in October 2022 to bring more freedom, exploration and fun into playtimes. During lunchtime the children are able to use the whole of our outdoor spaces, the field, both play grounds, trim trail, fort and wooded area. Our school council are helping to lead the positive changes and are having regular meetings to discuss OPAL and have even started leading some assemblies.  







Our New Sandpit!

Local builders, Lovell Partnerships LTD supported the development of our OPAL playtimes by building a giant sand pit for all the children to use during their break time. 

We want to give a huge thank you to Lovell for their generous donation - it has made a great addition to our playtimes.
