Successful Play Project

At Sambourne CE VC Primary School we believe in having successful playtimes.

We believe that children should:

  • Enjoy playing with friends, of all ages
  • Play creatively and collaboratively with one another
  • Be able to play safely

Our Successful Play Team is made up of skilled and well-trained teaching assistants and our Y5 & 6 play leaders. Our Successful Play Team meets regularly throughout the school year to review what is working well and what needs further developing. Feedback from these meetings are given to the children through our Wednesday Values assembly.

Our Successful Play Team TAs are:

  • Mr Pragnell
  • Mrs Maffey
  • Mrs Johnstone

Our play leaders:

Play zones and equipment

At lunchtimes our children access a variety of play zones including:

  • 5-a side football space
  • Skipping zone
  • Ball zone

The children have access to our Scrapstore Play Pod 3 times per week. We have lots of play equipment including balls, hoops, stilts and chess sets. Our PTFA have recently donated new equipment to our Successful Play Project.
