What is OPAL?

OPAL is Outdoor Play and Learning.

OPAL is a way of encouraging children to take part in freely-chosen, child-directed play, just for the fun of it.

At lunchtimes, our children are free to play, creating their own games and precious memories with a huge range of large and small everyday items.
