BRIEF

Hinderton School is a SEN primary school that specialises in children on the Autistic spectrum and with social communication difficulties. The brief given was to remove an area of tired surfacing as well as an old climbing frame and replace with like-for-like items. They also wanted to include an additional Trim Trail circuit and role play area.


DESIGN

From the get go, it was acknowledged that there was two different areas to be re-developed; KS1 and KS2.
Within the KS1 area we removed the existing Timber Climbing frame and surfacing and replaced them with our Dart Activity Centre and Rubber Mulch Safety Surfacing. Along with this we added our vibrant Land Ranger and Perspex Board to encourage role play and imaginative play.
For the KS2 area we created a challenging Trim Trail circuit, along with Rubber Mulch Safety Surfacing to ensure the whole play space met all BSEN 1176 and 1177 safety standards and allowed for all-weather use. Trim Trail items such as our Crawling Net and Tyre Crossing were incorporated to ensure balance, co-ordination and climbing skills were targeted while still focusing on more traditional physical play aspects.


INSTALLATION

Throughout the installation our Project Manager worked closely with Hinderton’s School Business Manager to ensure the installation ran smoothly to caused little disruption to the pupils’ school day.
Overall the playground development at Hinderton School has been a huge success and the children love their new play areas!
