Playground & Playtimes

Due to the size of the school, break and lunch times are ‘staggered’ with Years 1, 3 and 5 taking early breaks and Years 2, 4 and 6 taking late breaks. This ensures that there are no more than 450 children on the playgrounds at any one time.

In general, the Years 1, 2 and 3 use the large ground floor play areas and Years 4, 5 and 6 the roof top playgrounds. There is adequate seating provided on all playgrounds for children to eat their morning snack. A variety of play equipment is available as well as football pitches and line markings for other games.

The health and safety of our children at all times is very important to us. The children are closely supervised during playtimes and our playground surfaces are designed to enable the children to play safely. Our school nurse is on duty in the Medical Room throughout the school day. We also carry out regular site inspections in order to address safety issues and arrange termly fire drills.
