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

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.

Cara Morton, Dubmire Primary School

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

Sam is absolutely fantastic at what he does and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have him as part of our team! The children adore their time with him and his weekly Forest School sessions are so engaging, even the staff look forward to donning their waterproofs and wellies to join in (muddy puddles and all)! Over the past few years, we have used SC.OUT.ED to deliver sessions, both in and out of school, and the response from children, staff and parents has always been phenomenal…and the children can’t stop talking about their learning with a huge smile (what more could we ask for?!). If you are looking for highly-skilled practitioners to enhance your curriculum offer with exciting & challenging outdoor learning opportunities, look no further than SC.OUT.ED; we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!

Lisa Pegman, Deputy Headteacher, Simonside Primary School

Sam’s session was tailored and linked very well to our rainforests topic.  The session delivered exactly what we hoped it would – the children learnt about adaptations and were able to extend their knowledge in a creative way, at a perfect pace and with a range of activities.  The day was excellently delivered!
