Going Green: Our Vicar’s Green Primary School Development
Vicar’s Green Primary School approached Creative Play looking to develop a blank grassed area to introduce a selection of physical equipment to challenge KS2 children, along with a seated area.
We visited the school to assess the area understand the requirements of the school.
Following the visit, we sat with our design team to create an area that offers physical play through a variety of equipment such as one of our Jigsaw Play Towers that provides many play features to allow multiple children to enjoy at one time, a selection of Trim Trail including items such as a Tyre Crossing, Zigzag Beam and Overhead Ladder.
To keep in line with the appearance of the surrounding area we have laid artificial grass beneath and around the equipment – this also guaranteed the area to meet BSEN standards.
One of our Octavia Shelters was also incorporated to offer a seating area for children to take that well deserved break but also encourages children to take shelter from the sun during peak times and provides a resource to take learning outdoors and using it as an outdoor classroom.
The area has been completely transformed to offer many benefits and includes so much play value for children to enjoy for many years to come – it is amazing what you can do with a blank area you think has no use!
