Critchill 'Den'

Critchill 'Den'

Pupils at the school would like to install a den into the wooded area of their playground. Our school playground is often used by other schools and for community events so it could benefit more than just the pupils at Critchill.


Great space for pupils to enjoy in their own time as well as continue to learn in a less formal environment

This sounds like a great idea which would benefit Critchill school pupils and the wider community 😊

This will give vulnerable students with additional needs a valuable learning space to further enhance their education

The 'Critchill Den' will be used for both 'free play' but also as an additional learning space for our younger pupils. The den will support role play, social communication opportunities and collaborative play during break and lunch times. Staff at school will be able to use the den as a versatile learning space; a hideaway to share stories, a place to take part in a small group learning activity and a break away space to relax.

Brilliant for the kiddies

This is a fantastic idea and I am sure would be well used by young people from Critchill and other schools, a great way to let their imaginations loose!

A wonderful den for children to play and learn. Children will love to explore and use it for quiet time, local schools will also benefit from this addition to our playground. πŸ˜€

This would be wonderful for the Critchill students πŸ˜„

Excellent idea

What a fantastic idea! Love the video.

Wow this would be amazing! Many benefits inc a space to play, learn, and relax. There is a lack of spaces/places children with additional needs can go in the community, so any addition to the school provision is of huge value and importance :)

This would give an extra space for students to enable them to recover from episodes in peace

It looks like it will be great fun for the pupils.

This would be an amazing space which could have a wide variety of uses to greatly benefit the children at Critchill and their learning and wellbeing as well as others within the community ☺️
