Blue Coat receives national Playwork Award!

awardresizeFantastic news!

Blue Coat has been awarded a national Playwork Award in the category 'Playwork in other contexts'. Mrs Murray picked up the playful 'woodpecker' trophy at the Annual Playwork Conference and Award evening in Eastbourne earlier this week (March 5th).

Mrs Murray, Blue Coat's Play Coordinator said,

"It is wonderful to have Blue Coat's commitment to play and a playwork approach in school recognised with this award. A really special thing about our journey over the last 5 years is the support we have received from the whole school community; donations to support play (pans, suitcases, wellies, boats!), parents cleaning toys, building Mud Kitchen furniture and mending existing equipment, or even just the not minding too much about grass stained knees, grubby socks and pockets filled with nature's treasures!
Special thanks should go to Blue Coat PTA for providing the initial funding for the school to work with OPAL Outdoor Play and Learning CiC and, of course, to the Blue Coat pupils, for responding with such energy and enthusiasm to every new opportunity presented to them."
