Why did you want to develop your playground?
Recent news from Ofsted has highlighted the importance of free flow play and it was important to us that we able to respond positively with a way of incorporating it even more, into our school routine. We didn’t want to invest in fixed equipment for our playground and we wanted something that would be easy and quick to tidy away when it’s finished with. Storage is an issue at school so we needed something that wouldn’t require us to sacrifice a lot of space.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
Our requirements were quite specific so we were anxious that we wouldn’t be able to find something that suited us perfectly. When we saw the Poddely sets available from Playforce we thought they looked like the ideal solution. They could be tidied away easily into their self-contained storage pods and included all of the equipment we’d need to encourage more free flow play at school.
