Playtimes are an important time for children to be able to socialise with their peers.

At Mersey Primary Academy we encourage children to make and maintain friendships. As part of the work that our Emotional Well Being Team carry out, we ensure that buddy systems are used for those children that are less confident.

Different areas of the playground are used at different times of the year. During the current inclement weather, we aviod using the field as it can become muddy and we also avoid the climbing frames during wet weather. It is important that during warmer weather, children have a bottle of water and wear the appropriate summer uniform.

Indoor breaktimes are decided on by the teacher on duty, if the teacher does decide on an indoor break then children will go back to classrooms after a comfort break and be able to chat and draw pictures.
