Event Details

Course Trainer – Jenny Mosley

Jenny wrote the Happier Lunchtimes & Playtimes Guidance for the DfE’s Primary National Strategy, and was on the QCA’s PE and School Sports (PESS) steering committee to advocate traditional games in playgrounds! Her pioneering work in school playgrounds was featured on the BBC’s ‘Just One Chance’ programme.  Jenny has written ‘How to Create Calm Dining Halls’ – a book that is packed full of tried and tested ideas and is incredibly practical.  Find out how Jenny’s ideas support British values and the latest guidance from Ofsted.


What is this session about?  

Because Jenny is the leading pioneer of positive playtimes and the originator of zoning, playground friends and friendship stops – she will give you many ideas to re-energise your playtimes.  Jenny will highlight the importance of positive relationships and how these can motivate children to play well together and to relate well to mid-day supervisors and TAs.  Delegates testify to the huge impact Jenny’s ideas have to revolutionise dining hall systems and the ethos of the playground.

What past delegates say… 

  • “My head is buzzing with new ideas and I can’t wait to spread some joy! I would love everyone at my workplace to feel exactly the same as me! I feel absolutely motivated and how I felt when I first started this job 15 years ago! Mim Slater, TA, Northborough Primary School
  • “I have had wonderful feedback from not only my staff but other heads too who sent their staff on the training.  All commented on your enthusiasm and inspiration.  How wonderful is all of that.”  Jennifer Richards, Headteacher, St Mark’s CE Primary, Bromley, Kent
  • “Truly inspirational. Playtimes are now much improved, and we are working on all the issues, having fun and playing lots……” Louise Siriwetchaphan, Pupil Support Worker, Beechwood Primary School, Leeds

Who is this day for?

It’s for lunchtime supervisors, teaching assistants and anyone who undertakes lunchtime duties.

For a school to get the best value from the day, Jenny also encourages senior managers to attend so a true whole school positive relationships framework can be put in place.

This course costs £65
