‘Bishop Jonathan saying, in front of the school ‘bless this rope swing and bless these monkey bars’ was a moment of surreal delight for us all and summarised their arrival and use perfectly. They are (quite obviously) just a bit of fun but also deadly serious, providing, as they do, a chance for children to consider risk, to take it and test themselves (or not) as well as our trust of them – this is at the centre of learning in my view and the same principles can be applied equally to writing a poem or trying quadratic equations.’ Fred de Falbe
