“On the playground, a recently introduced ‘scrap store’ called the Play Pod has been remarkably successful. In fact, pupils say it has ‘revolutionised’ the way that they play and behave outside… The ingenuity and imagination they employ when using this equipment is fantastic to see.” – HM Inspector; Perry Hall Primary School, Wolverhampton. Ofsted short inspection March 2016
As agents of Bristol Children’s Scrapstore we support Scrapstore Playpods™ in schools across the Midlands.
The Scrapstore PlayPod is a purpose built structure full of ‘loose parts’ from Children’s Scrapstore, (such as cardboard tubes, tyres, lengths of material, netting, rope, and much more) which are non-prescriptive and so can be played with however children want.
The process includes full training and support for lunchtime and other school staff.
