Playful Learning

Scotland’s Play Strategy Outcome:  All children and young people enjoy high quality play opportunities in stimulating spaces with access to nature, on a daily basis in school, nursery and early learning and childcare.

Scotland’s Play Strategy Impact:  All school staff, and early years practitioners will receive play training, as part of their initial education and career long professional learning.  They will have sufficient skills, knowledge and understanding of play to support play opportunities.  All schools and settings will have well designed, inclusive spaces for play which support high quality play experiences.  School grounds will be valued spaces for play in local communities.  Education managers and leaders in school and early years settings demonstrate their commitment to increasing and developing play opportunities and to supporting staff to do so through priorities in the improvement planning cycle, the ethos and community life of their establishments and their own professional learning and leadership activities.
