Why did you want to develop your playground?
The arts have always been important at Liden Primary School and we wanted to find a way to take them outdoors. We decided to develop our playground so that it could be a space where we could put on performances and enjoy musical activities. Designing a space to incorporate all of this with the addition of fresh air was something we felt would really benefit our pupils.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
We had seen examples of a number of schools that had used Playforce before and we were really impressed with the quality. The element that stood out for us is that it’s clear the equipment has been designed with years of experience of working with children. It satisfies all of the aspects of health, safety and compliance but, just as importantly, is created to encourage fun and active play.
