All different, all together, all Icknield.

OPAL Play and learning

At Icknield, we are committed to ensuring quality play opportunities are available to all our children. Play makes up 20% of a child's day at school and we believe that it is essential for physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual development of every child.

Most of our best childhood memories are from playing outdoors, climbing trees and exploring the wide world around us. OPAL gives us the opportunity to give those memories to your children. OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning) is all about using naturally and man made resources to allow children to be inspired and creative at playtime.
