This book explains how playgrounds can be improved, both aesthetically and as a resource to support primary children's learning and development. It examines how schools can develop their playgrounds into vibrant, interesting environments that may be enjoyed by pupils, as well as areas that will support the formal, informal and hidden curriculum. It is important to fully utilise the potential of a school site and develop it into a resource that will have a really positive influence upon pupils. An attractive, stimulating space will promote physical and emotional health, encourage good behaviour, increase children's involvement and enjoyment, encourage learning, reduce incidences of bullying or racism and support staff in skillfully managing playtimes. This book has practical real life examples, showing areas that can be developed in order to alter the atmosphere and appearance of school grounds, as well as ways to impact upon pupil health and well being.
