Play in Schools

We are able to offer a wide selection of activities, whether targeted or universal to help promote all types of play and improve behaviour and the overall school environment.

In the last year we have worked in a large amount of Reading school's for a huge variety of reasons, which puts us an ideal place to meet and exceed your requirements and expectations. One of our most popular services is the SEN support package, which is built around the hours of support you will receive from us, rather than a set time slot. The duration of our packages are entirely flexible to suite your needs, whether you need support for just one term, 12 weeks, or the full school year.

Please ensure that you purchase your items as soon as you can via our Reading Education Services page (details below), as we have limited spaces available for certain packages being offered this year. We will remove the buying option on services that we feel have reached their capacity.

You can learn more about the benefits of play in schools through the Developing Play in Schools report by Brunel University.


  • Increased physical activity for your pupils
  • Improved pupil behaviour
  • Personal, social and emotional skill development
  • Team building skills
  • Sports coaching
  • Outdoor learning experiences
  • Behaviour management in and outside of the classroom environment
