Barlby Primary School - Active Play and Sports Spaces

Active Play and Sports Space

We were asked to create an active play space for the children at Barlby Primary School. This was to include a space for ball games, multiple climbing opportunities and creative play areas.

The playground incorporates a MUGA with bright blue surfacing and line markings for basketball, football and netball. A huge Beacon Quad Tower with Slides, Monkey Bars, Bridges, Scramble Nets, Ladders and Rock Wall components forms a bold focal point alongside the 4m tall Climbing Net! There are also provisions for imaginative play with a Jungle Play Den.

A fun and exciting play space to be used in all weathers!

Wadebridge Primary School Physical Play Area

Physical Play Area

The design brief at Wadebridge Primary School was to create a physical play area for the school field that could be used at break time for free play and in PE lessons for more structured exercises.

The adventure trail allows a large number of children to play at once while testing and developing upper body strength, coordination, agility and balance. The mixture of low and high-level equipment allows the trail to cater for all age groups and abilities.

“It’s fantastic to see the children having so much fun on the new equipment. I hope it will be enjoyed by many in the years to come.”

Lizzy Whiting, Parents’ Group Chairman.
