OPAL – Outdoor Play and Learning
Here at Holtsmere End Junior School, 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 of each child. Most of our best childhood memories are from playing outdoors, climbing trees and exploring the wide world around us. OPAL gives us the opportunity to give those memories to your children. OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) is all about using naturally and man made resources to allow children to be inspired and creative at playtimes and lunchtimes.
What does this mean for us

A fully inclusive playtime offer
It allows children an opportunity to be creative and make decisions
