ESP Play are School Playground Design, Development and afPE accredited CPD Training specialists who recognise outdoor play as a context to deliver real improvements across the whole school and community. In addition to having worked with thousands of schools throughout the UK we have also engaged with a number Public Health teams and schools in carrying out interventions that improve physical literacy/movements skills and attitudes towards physical activity; as well as being recognised as a preventative practice against childhood obesity.
Our unique approach to the use of playground equipment in schools has been subject to independent research from leading universities. Leeds Metropolitan, Liverpool John Moores and Roehampton University have all been commissioned to evaluate the impact and sustainability of our Multi-Skills Zone concept.
ESP Play fly the flag for positive impact participation in daily high quality physical activity and its impact on the 5 Key indicators mentioned by DfE in relation to its vision for self-sustaining improvement in quality of PE & Sport in schools through the PE & Sports Premium.
