Feedback sought on play strategy and school playground design materials
A commitment, set out in Fair Play: A consultation on the play strategy, stated that 'To make it easier for head teachers and governors to access examples of good practice, we will pull together all relevant material into one place to encourage all schools to further develop their play facilities'.
These materials have now been pulled together into a downloadable PDF document and feedback is sought as to the layout, format and contents of the document.
