Setting Up a Health Day for Trainee Teachers
Opal Programme - Supporting better, healthier play & learning in schools
OPAL is all about achieving a total `cultural change’ within a school, moving from an attitude that dismisses play as an inconvenience and a risk, to a whole-hearted belief by all staff in the benefits of active, rich, varied and challenging playtimes for all children. The programme will inevitably fail without the full commitment and constant support of the Headteacher.
The Dept. for Health has confirmed that the Sport Premium for schools can be used for active play initiatives (such as the OPAL programme) that promote the development of a healthy lifestyle.
