The OASES team contains play specialists who can help your school to reinvigorate outdoor play.  

Play is essential to a child's development, yet our current culture does not facilitate it.  Children do not play in the streets, wandering far and wide with their friends like they used to due to fears over their safety.  This, added to the lure of the electronic diversion, means that 'free play' is increasingly becoming a thing of the past and children are loosing the skills to engage in positive play.

We can support your school to encourage positive play through: staff CPD sessions; advice on equipment purchase; school grounds design for play.
