A drive to get children out to play has been launched. The year-long campaign, “Away and Play”, is powered by Inspiring Scotland. It will highlight the benefits of free and unstructured play in encouraging imagination, promoting risk-taking, improving health and helping children collaborate.

Research published in the academic journal Early Education and Development is part of a growing body of research on the subject. This has shown that children with higher levels of active outdoor play had improved cognition which resulted in better academic performance in reading and mathematics.

These findings are supported by evidence from Inspiring Scotland’s Active Play programme, which currently works with primary schools in Glasgow in partnership with Glasgow City Council, through which class teachers have reported greater alertness and focus from children following active outdoor play sessions.

GHA and GCC have put together a nice new play area at Daisy Park, and this morning was the official opening. St. Paul’s and Scotstoun PS kids were there to do the important stuff. They did a great job cutting the ribbon and going bananas. Councillors Jean McFadden and Graeme Hendry were there too, it’s good to see the council investing in play facilities. Next stop, Jordan Street!
