Positive Play

 

Our beautiful Ocean Room was opened on 1st March '13 by the Mayor of Alfreton - Mr John Walker.  Our Pupil Prime Minister, our Deputy Prime Minister, and our Chancellor of the Exchequer were present.

Here at Leys, we feel it is incredibly important for children to want to come to school, and enjoy their overall school experience. We also recognise the importance to engage in class discussions and group work. Although this is the aim, it is common that some children find this challenging. For this reason, we have dedicated a specific room within the school for children to go to if we feel they require some assistance.

The Ocean Room is a place that children can go to discuss their feelings and learn how to build good relationships. Mrs Gaunt supports those children in this through playing games and completing focused work. We have noticed countless improvements within these sessions, and value them highly.
