"If you have a boring school playground and a limited budget, then the ideas in this book could help you transform your play times and enrich your children's lives. Read the book and watch the film, share them with your colleagues and parents and get started on the journey to great outdoor play."

Alastair Seaman, GfL

This book looks at the experience of three North Lanarkshire schools as they introduce loose materials to the playground. You can see a short film of one of the schools experiences here.

There are chapters of case studies; information on what materials and where to get them; sources of funding; information on the training events for using loose materials that were run; information on the outcomes gained and clear links with the Curriculum for Excellence.

There is a wealth of advice on managing the materials (including tidying up!); the role of adults, risks vs benefits, learned experience of supporting colleagues and informing parents.
