Why did you want to develop your playground?
We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to encourage more free flow play in school. We wanted to give our pupils the opportunity to move between the classroom and the playground throughout the day, as and when it was appropriate. We needed to find something that wouldn’t require too much floor space and would be easy to pack up when the bell rings.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
A lot of the other providers we had looked at only offered fixed equipment or play sets that take time and effort to put together. The Poddely sets offered by Playforce are flexible and diverse, we loved seeing the set in action before we bought one and hearing about other schools that have experienced it. The team talked us through the process of setting up and packing away and showed us how we could encourage the children to think and play creatively.
