Welcome to Delves Junior School.

At Delves Federation, we are passionate about children's mental and physical wellbeing.  We acknowledge the seriousness of play as a human right.  Learning not only takes place through good teaching, but also play!  Children spend 20% (1.4 years of their life in Primary School) of their time in school playing.


Here at Delves, we have adopted the OPAL (Outdoor play and learning) programme to ensure that all children use this time to their full potential.  OPAL is built on the philosophy that all children should have an inclusive play environment which promotes imaginative play, risk taking and team work. Our children love the new outdoor opportunities that OPAL offers with so much more for them to do, no matter the weather!


Through this approach to play children are not only more active at lunch or break times, but they are also having the opportunity to further develop life skills such as cooperation, team work and problem solving. They are becoming motivated and enthusiastic builders, engineers, explorers and designers.
