Comments about our playground by the Birkenhead Resource Teachers of Learning and Behaviour;
“Most students were actively involved in lunchtime activities. Use of equipment was extensive with many games being played over a large part of the lunch break.”
“A wide range of activities was observed – most were of an active nature.”
“The observations of negative incidents were minimal, generally handled by the students themselves.”
A comment by the Educational Review Office;
“Respectful, affirming relationships with peers and with teachers are evident.”
