The award-winning OPAL Primary Programme helps schools to improve children’s play experiences.

At The Beacon, we believe in the ‘power of play’ and recognise that having quality time and provision to play is essential for positive mental and physical health, exploring learning in new ways and for the development of healthy relationships.

The programme is helping us to plan for and invest in play in the same way as other areas of our curriculum! And the results are already being seen in schools across the world – children in OPAL schools concentrate better in class, are healthier and happier and so are the staff!
