Nature Play

At Lockleys Primary School we promote Nature Play. Our aim is to provide outdoor learning spaces that support physical health, socio-emotional development, development of the senses, and overall wellbeing and mental health.

Through play we encourage students to move, be creative and imaginative, problem solve, build confidence, emotional resilience and have fun interacting with their peers.

Our play spaces have been developed by our school community in conjunction with architects, playground designers and nature play and sustainability consultants.
