Witton Gilbert Primary School

We have an amazing outside space here at Witton Gilbert Primary School. With the support of OPAL (Outdoor Play and Learning http://www.outdoorplayandlearning.org.uk) we continue to improve and develop quality play for our children.

Our children experience freedom to play with a wealth of areas and materials accessible to all. A construction area, mud kitchen, digging mud pit, bug hunting, and a new quiet area (which will be opening very soon).These are just a few of the areas where the pupils experience quality play; free to express their creativity.

Happier playtimes can also result in messy playtimes. We do encourage all children to bring a pair of welly boots to school as they will be able to access the fields and mud in all weathers. Their welly boots will be stored in the welly sheds (please print their names on the inside, thank you).


Here at Witton Gilbert Primary School, we are very lucky to have supportive parents who donate unwanted items and materials to us. Your unwanted items could be our treasure such as pots and pans, wooden kitchen utensils, old curtains, shower curtains, plastic pots, tubes and bigger items such as tyres, electrical cable reels, keyboards, pallets..... the list is not exhaustive. We will be delighted with any contributions and thank you for supporting our wonderful play.
