OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning)

We are delighted to announce that Beech Hill has started it’s OPAL journey.

OPAL is an award-winning, mentor supported school improvement programme that addresses all the areas that schools must plan for if they want to improve the quality of their play opportunities. OPAL is the only programme of its kind that has been independently proven to sustainably improve the quality of play in British primary schools.

As Beech Hill improves play opportunities for children across school, you will start to see changes in the playground as we will slowly implement new play opportunities a zone at a time, ensuring that the zones are safe, fun and appropriately resourced.  Please look out for more information about our OPAL journey on Seesaw.
