Delivering Inspirational School Playground Equipment
Sundridge & Brasted CofE Primary School were looking to transform their existing playground. They wanted to replace their old, unsafe, play equipment. The challenge they faced was the area of the playground they wanted to develop was compact and on a slope. Upon meeting with the school and inspecting the play area, our expert Playground Consultant Neil Martin, knew that he needed to design a bespoke piece of play equipment to fit into the limited space that would be provide age-appropriate physical challenge for the children and accommodate the contour of the ground. By using his 17 years of experience and vast knowledge of outdoor play and learning within education, Neil designed bespoke equipment using a variety of trim trail components. Doing this ensured the new area would be fun and engaging for the children whilst also meeting the schools request to develop agility, balance and co-ordination during break times.
Best Playground Equipment
Sundridge & Brasted CofE Primary School and Playtime by Fawns have been working together over the last few years to provide the pupils of the school with opportunities for outdoor play and learning. So, when they approached most recently to develop a small, underutilised area of their school playground, and install something new and exciting that would be suitable for all the pupils we were keen to create the perfect solution.
What Went into the Primary School Playground
The playground included the following, to ensure we achieved the brief of a challenging and inclusive playground:
- Log traverse
- Link parallel rope walk
- Adjoining crossed rope
- Bespoke 3m balance beam
- Adjoining parallel rope walk
- Link H rope walk
- Drop rope traverse
Growth, Learning and Development within the Playground
Sundridge & Brasted CofE Primary School has an ethos that ensures that every child can fully experience school both inside and outside the classroom by providing an inspirational and creative curriculum, rich in opportunity and full of challenge. Naturally, the gradual changes to the outside playground areas fully support this ethos and we feel very privileged to be able to contribute to the pupil’s ongoing growth, learning and development, for many years to come.
