Childwall Valley Primary School: Case Study

The Brief:


Childwall Valley Primary School contacted Creative Play looking to revamp their existing outdoor play equipment which was currently installed onto tarmac.

On first contact, the school confirmed they were looking for climbing equipment to promote physical play and wanted to have different areas within the playground with possible talks of a MUGA!


The Design:


After meeting with Childwall Valley Primary School, it was confirmed they wanted to develop their EYFS area along with new physical equipment in the KS2 area as well a sports zone in the KS1 area.


The EYFS area was to include a Storytelling Area, Teepees, a Mound Tunnel, Mud Kitchen Maxi and a variety of sensory products including our Mini Beasts and Wormery and a seating area under our Pyramid Shelter.


This was to promote imaginative play and to allow children to develop fundamental skills.


In the KS1 area a MUGA was decided and this was to incorporate Basketball Goals, along with Target Panels including a Penalty Play, a Free Kick as well as Thermoplastic Football Court Markings.


This is great for promoting physical play and developing children’s co-ordination and social skills.


In the KS2 area the school wanted to add a more challenging piece of equipment for the older children. Together with Childwall Valley we selected our fantastic Fort Henry, which an impressive six tower system with huge variety of play features and encourages physical, social and creative play.


Within all the areas we have installed different safety surfacing it ensure the playground development conforms to the BSEN 1177 and BSEN1176 requirements.


The Installation:


The installation at Childwall Valley Primary School presented a set of challenges for our installation teams. Our expert teams rose to the challenge however and were able to deliver a quality installation that fulfilled all requirements, that the school and pupils will be proud of for years to come!
