This study presents a proposal for comprehension of educational recreation and its relationship with school climate. The proposal was developed based on an evaluation carried out in a Chilean government program which is in place since 2017 in 371 schools throughout the country. The evaluation involved a literature review, the administration of surveys to its participants and a qualitative approach with multiple case studies in three schools. Although the program began with an orientation that emphasized physical activity as a recreational space and a promoter of health, findings suggest moving towards a conception of educational recreation that has implications not only about the integral health of the students but also in the strengthening of transversal social processes in the educational community, such as those related to the deployment of an inclusive, democratic and peaceful school climate.
