BRIEF An existing customer, Sherfield School got back in contact with Creative Play as they were looking to revamp their KS1 and Early Years areas. Wanting to focus primarily on sensory play, role play and climbing equipment they were keen to hear our thoughts on how best to redevelop the two outdoor spaces. As always, we were happy to help!
DESIGN Due to the scale of the Sherfield’s development, we knew we wanted to incorporate a variety of impressive play equipment to really utilise the space on offer. Our Adventure Trail 16 is a ready made circuit ideal for encouraging physical play and developing fundamental movements skills, while our vibrant Mini Train and Teepee playhouse meets the role play elements requested in Sherfield’s brief. Sensory play items such as our Water Wall -EYFS, Mud Kitchen Midi & Digging Planter Miniature Garden are fantastic for encouraging children to discover & explore during play and are always popular in both Early Years & KS1 settings. A combination of Wetpour and Rubber Mulch Safety Surfacing was used throughout to provide all-weather play surfaces as well as to ensure all BSEN 1176 and 1177 safety requirements were met.
INSTALLATION Due to the sheer scale of the development at Sherfield School it was essential that everyone worked closely together to ensure a successful outcome. As a summer holiday installation it was of paramount importance that all deadlines were met before pupils returned for the new school year.
Overall, the combination of play equipment and safety surfacing looks fantastic and has truly transformed the outdoor space. Well done to all involved!
