Why did you want to develop your playground?
Outdoor learning is becoming an increasingly important part of the curriculum and we felt that our playground had the potential to be an amazing outdoor space. We wanted to develop our grounds so that they would be an exciting and imaginative place to learn. By designing an interactive and stimulating space we felt that we could make the playground an extension of the classroom.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
We knew that it would be a big project but Playforce was ready to accept the challenge with lots of ideas. They showed us a number of ways we could transform our space and utilise it to make it really engaging for outdoor learning. They showed us how the equipment could be used in a number of different ways, for developing different skills, as well as giving examples of how other schools have approached similar projects.
