We are able to offer a wide selection of activities and services. Whether targeted or universal to help promote all types of play and improve behaviour, as well as the overall school environment.
The team are able to offer bespoke packages of support if you don't find what you need in the following pages, please give send us an email or give us a call. We have worked in a large amount of schools in Reading for a huge variety of different reasons; from providing SEN support, to sports coaching sessions. This puts us an ideal place to find solutions to your potential problems.

"Using Reading Play has enabled us to develop the children's social skills - they love the opportunity to play a range of games in mixed age groups at lunchtime. We used to have Reading Play sessions 3 lunchtimes a week but the pupils requested to have it every day! The staff from Reading Play are flexible and slot in to work alongside existing staff as part of the team. We have valued their professionalism and the care they have shown pupils of all ages. Reading Play workers have many talents! They have supported us to develop our provision for pupils at lunchtime, at transition points during the day and in the classroom with specific children."

More Details

Reading Play offer a variety of activities and packages that are all available on a “Pay as you Go” model. We can offer a mixture of structured curriculum based activities, physical exercise programmes, after school sessions, and playground & behaviour support.

We would be delighted to come and offer your school something new and different for your PE lessons or just to offer ways of increasing the amount of physical activity for your children. Our Sports Coaching Packages tie in nicely to the new Primary School sports fund, in which we can work with you to match the criteria requirements and improve your school sports programme.

We have also successfully engaged in a variety of different pupil behaviour programmes, whether directly in class or as respite support within the school to prevent disturbance to other pupils. This can help prevent violent behaviour and disruption within classes. We are flexible with what we offer and all team members are Team Teach trained and experienced in dealing with children with behavioural difficulties.

SEN Support Packages: This is flexible to your needs and built around the hours of support you will receive from us, rather than a set timeslot. As a result of this new package and from previous year's experience, please ensure that you purchase your items as soon as you can.

We also hire items and this includes the following options:
  • Balance Bikes
  • Soap Box Karts
  • 9 Hole Mini Golf Kit
  • Imagination Playground
  • Ultimate Hire Package Includes soft play, imagination playground, and balance boards all in one!

Please check out our website for information about our different services and feedback from schools we have worked in over the past year.
