Due to building confidence and capability amongst staff and encouraging children to become more active, PE & Sports Premium can be used to access this programme.

Play is a vital part of every child’s life and is important for social, emotional and physical development. Focusing on play is important as it gives children the opportunities to choose what they want to do, to meet and socialise with their friends and keeps them physically active.

SC.OUT.ED work with schools to deliver a range of different play programmes – we offer broad experiences and activities to reduce ‘play bias’ which can have the effect of excluding some children from play. By engaging more children, play can have a positive impact upon behaviour too. Guidelines recommend children engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.

The impact of play:

  • Gives children the opportunity to mix with other children
  • Provides opportunities for developing social skills and learning
  • Builds self-confidence and esteem
  • Helps improve ability to focus and control their behavior
  • Improves attention span

Packages can include:

  • Staff Training – increasing staff confidence & capability
  • Lunchtime Play Sessions
  • Class Play Sessions
  • Holiday & After School Play Sessions

Types of play:

  • Loose Parts & Pretend Play
  • Traditional Games
  • Sport
  • Communication Play
  • Exploratory Play

What People Say

We wanted a high interest, active day with lots for the children to get stuck into and we got that from Mark. Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design with aspects of Communication and Language were successfully delivered. The delivery and management of the day was very good. Communication beforehand was quick and thorough. We really enjoyed the day, thank you!

Ashleigh Walker, Chopwell Primary

Sam is a wonderful trainer.  His outdoor pursuits inspired us with a multitude of reasons to embrace all aspects of nature and outdoor life. The students attending this course were all motivated to follow in Sam’s footsteps and engage children in a variety of fun outdoor activities with children in their own settings.

Wendy Jackson, Bishop Auckland College

This was the most enjoyable training course I’ve been on in some time! The course leaders were really helpful and knowledgeable. I feel inspired to motivate the children and to start some growing activities! Thank you so much.

Louise Gardner, St Mary’s RCVA Primary

During a den building activity it was great to see how quieter children showed their capacity for leadership and imagination.  The activities Sam delivered were engaging, challenging and required teamwork plus led to some good writing afterwards.

Nicola Welsh, Middlestone Moor Primary

I enjoyed the activities immensely because you were there to add knowledge, enthusiasm and a ‘different slant’ on our habitats topic. Your delivery at our school was fantastic and our aims to increase the children’s knowledge and enjoyment were met. The day was very well delivered, organised and managed. We were extremely impressed with how you were with the children and your knowledge of the topic. We shall be contacting you again to see if you have any other topics that you could deliver.
