Playgrounds are places for students to engage in play activities between classes.
Playgrounds and other specific spaces near the school are the usual places for pupils to rest and play. They are equipped with specific resources for entertainment and for the educational guidance of their games, all in compliance with the appropriate safety standards. These standards establish the minimum requirements for these places and requires that they have a play area, partially covered, which can be used as a multi-sports court. This area must have a surface area appropriate to the number of school places and will not normally be smaller than 900 square metres in size.
At break times, certain teachers are responsible for the care and attention of these pupils. On rainy or very cold days, the covered playground areas or the school hall itself are used for recreation.
