A play friendly school – Guidance for a whole school approach provides policy and practice related information to help school communities take a whole school approach to support children’s right to play.
It has been developed to respond to Estyn’s Healthy and happy – school impact on pupils’ health and wellbeing report, which notes the importance of school play and break times.
The guidance is designed to enhance the good work already being done to provide better play opportunities in school and aims to make everyone’s time at school happier and healthier.
The guidance is accompanied by a range of supporting resources, which are all available to download.
A play friendly school – Guidance for a whole school approach is endorsed by: Children’s Legal Centre Wales, Children in Wales, Health & Attainment of Pupils in a Primary Education Network (HAPPEN) and the National Centre for Population Health & Wellbeing Research (NCPHWR).
