Our Playground

Giuseppe Loporchio

In our playground we have a number of different equipment. Probably the most popular of these is the Football Rota. This rota allows every year group to have a full 15 minutes to kick up a game and play. Girls and boys are allowed to play and the 4 years stretch their time over the 1 hour lunch break.

Also in our playground we have a fabulous play trail. It is brilliant and there are always at least 5 people on it. Of course, if is wet then we have to disallow it due to the slippery surfaces but when it is sunny, there is always several children playing happily on it. It includes:


  • A climbing wall
  • A zip line
  • Monkey bars
  • A spider rope wall
  • A Tarzan swing
  • Swinging tyres
  • A rolling wheel
  • A balance beam
  • Walking  poles
  • Rope swing bars

As you can see, there is a lot to enjoy.

As well as all this, there is over 90 separate pieces of equipment to play with. Bats and balls, tennis rackets, stilts, ball cups, ankle flips and many more. These numbers are increased by the equipment that the paly leaders bring out. Scooter boards, bouncy balls, games – made up by play leaders themselves – and much more.
