Welcome to Percy Main Primary School

At Percy Main Primary School we recognise and value our playtimes with the children as important aspects of our school day. We have over the years through careful observation and monitoring re-examined our practice and approaches to playground experiences and view the play opportunities we are now able to offer at playtimes highly valuable in supporting our school ethos  especially when the children are given the freedom to follow their own ideas and  interests.

It has therefore been up to us as a school to provide a play environment and play experiences where children are able to embrace opportunities to develop their own interests, talents and skills.

Historically our playtimes have evolved through the voice of our children. We believe that the best play environments are those which have developed through child participation and present day ongoing changes have been instigated  through various initiatives.

In line with our Eco-Schools agenda which promotes Healthy Lifestyles our playground developments ensure that the children’s health and well being are well catered for. This is achieved through the provision of a variety of play equipment which the children fund raise for themselves and through the development of areas of our school grounds which now are inclusive of an orchard and several small garden areas in which the children are free to explore.
