Why did you want to develop your playground?
The area behind the EYFS and KS1 classrooms was very small. There were a lot of bushes and sheds and only a small footpath for all the children and parents to walk through the area. The existing play space was really uninviting and the outdoor learning opportunities were limited. We recognised the importance of maximising the potential of the space we had available in order to offer optimum learning and play opportunities, and so approached Playforce.
How did you obtain funds for the playground?
Our funding came from various sources including capital grant, school budget and we were fortunate to receive a substantial contribution from the Parent Staff Association.
