Better Breaktimes, Better Transitions

“Better Breaktimes, Better Transitions: Supporting transitions through play” aims to improve breaktime experiences and understand how play can support a positive transition from primary to secondary education.

Commissioned and funded by the Scottish Government’s Get into Summer funding, it’s being delivered in partnership with Play Scotland and Falkirk Council.

About The Project

During the 2021 autumn term, 8 secondary schools across the Falkirk Council region will receive in-school professional support from experts within Learning through Landscapes and partner organisations to improve their outdoor play experiences.

Through providing better outdoor and play provision, we’ll monitor any improvements in children’s mental and physical wellbeing, as well as in their engagement with breaktime activity and formal learning.

The project will also explore ways to support children’s transitions from primary to secondary education, and will empower educators to make high-quality outdoor play a vital part of this process.

By the end of Better Breaktimes, Better Transitions, we aim to have gathered substantial evidence and insights from our approach, to help inform the improvement of secondary school play provision on a national level.
