The welfare requirements within the Early Years Foundation Stage state that, wherever possible, there should be access to an outdoor play area, and this is the expected norm for providers. In a provision where outdoor play space cannot be provided, outings should be planned and taken on a daily basis (unless circumstances make this inappropriate, eg unsafe weather conditions).
This provision encourages the children to access our well-resourced outdoor play space as much as possible, but during the summer months we are aware of the need to protect the children from the harmful rays of the sun. We have therefore developed this policy.
