OPAL - Outdoor Play and Learning


An OPAL approach promotes a more inclusive play environment in which all children can feel comfortable to express themselves. Our OPAL journey began in autumn 2020 and since this time, we have been working towards transforming our outdoor environment and playtimes.  OPAL offers an exciting alternative to the standard playground activities. We are pleased to announce that we are now a Platinum OPAL school after our final audit.

A view of playtimes at St Paul's by Lucy from Priestley Class.


Here at St Paul's we have many options for your child whether it be becoming a  world famous chef in the mud kitchen or becoming an acrobat on our franetic fitness trail.


The inside of our school has exploded outside but what about the playground? Well our school has recently started erupting with colour, like our new racing track which is full of rainbow scuttle bugs and bouncey hoppers plus zedbugs which you can use to race your friends. You can spread out in our two playgrounds and large field and our Rainbow Garden, which has been nurtured by the brilliant friends of St Pauls.


Come and have a look!
