Wendy Briscoe: Head Teacher Graiseley Primary School
We have worked with LearnPlay Foundation for two academic years and have found them to be passionate about their delivery, easy to work with and very committed to ensuring that our young people are engaged and switched on to learning.
They have delivered 2 Family Learning programmes for our children and their parents/guardians. These programmes have been immensely successful in regards to connecting parents and children, helping create a shared interest and strengthening the family dynamic through positive communication and active listening.
LearnPlay Foundation has also delivered a Teach the Teacher programme which had helped our teachers bring their lessons and parts of the curriculum to ‘life’ through the identification of relevant learning games and development tools which compliment areas within the curriculum, This has assisted engagement and learning reinforcement in some of the more dry areas of the curriculum.
Nathan Roberts: Year 4 Head Graiseley Primary School
Working with LearnPlay Foundation has greatly helped me to identify a range of games and multimedia that compliments certain parts of the curriculum. The use of development games (games which allow my students to build and re-create environments) have proved highly successful in terms of engaging my students and allowing their imaginations to roam free within the confines of the subject areas.
It has helped bring some of our subjects to life and one of the greatest impacts has been the learning reinforcement as the students have had the opportunity to get hands on.

This project has helped me to concentrate better and allowed me to work well in a team.

This is learning in a language that I understand, I play games but didn’t realise they could help me learn.

I believe that having access to LearnPlay’s approach will enhance the way in which we engage with our current client group.
Nick Corbett: Director, Transforming Cities Ltd.
I found working with the LearnPlay apprentices to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. They contributed in a positive way to the branding and promotion of my novel, Arden: Gateway to the Journey Home. I was impressed with the practical skills and the creativity of the apprentices; they listened well, had fresh ideas, and interpreted my brief in a convincing way.
