We are committed to ensuring quality play opportunities are available to all our children. We believe that play is essential for physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual development.
In our school play is any freely chosen activity which a child finds satisfying and creative.
It may or may not involve equipment or other people. It may be serious or light hearted. It may produce something or it may be done simply for its own sake.
It allows children an opportunity to be creative and make decisions.
In 2015 Esh Winning Primary School was awarded the Platinum Outdoor Play and Learning Award. If you would like to read the full report please click the link below.
