Play Sufficiency Assessment Survey
We want your help – please take part in the survey about children’s play. We want Wales to be a country where children are seen outside enjoying the benefits of play. We want to create a play friendly environment which provides time, space and permission for children to play. This will need parents, families and everyone in the community to recognise that play is of great importance in children’s present lives. We wish to promote positive attitudes towards children’s right to play freely in their communities. This will need all these groups, together with Local Authority elected Members and Officers; and other decision makers and providers across many policy areas, to work together to remove barriers to children’s play and make a real difference for children in their own streets and communities. For more information contact Rachel Maflin, Play Development Officer - or telephone 02921 321511 or go to the playwales website
To take part please complete the survey and e-mail it to the or via post return to Family Information Service, Ty Penallta, Ystrad Mynach, Caerphilly County Borough. CF82 7PG.
Consultation will close Jan 15th 2016. Become a Super Ambassador!

“The scheme creates opportunity to discuss rights with the rest of the school. Pupils thrive on the responsibility that the scheme provides.”

The Children’s Commissioner for Wales’ Super Ambassador scheme is an initiative that empowers pupils to become the Commissioner’s Ambassadors within their schools.

Two pupils, elected by their peers, take a lead role in promoting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the role of the Children’s Commissioner.

Super Ambassadors also complete a ‘Special Mission’ to gather opinions from other pupils on a wide range of issues. Information collated from the Super Ambassadors’ special missions will feed into the work of the Commissioner’s office.

This means that our Ambassadors have a direct impact on the work that we do to ensure that children and young people in Wales enjoy safe and happy lives.

A Super Ambassador has three main missions:

Telling children in their school about the Children's Commissioner for Wales, what he does and how to get in touch with his office;

Letting children, teachers and parents know about children's rights and the UNCRC;

Doing a special mission for the Commissioner once a term.
