Paxton Primary School: “The Equipment Successfully Provides Interest For Children of all Ages”

‘Our work with Schoolscapes begun at planning stage – of our building as well as our playground! The company were happy to work off plan and were able to support with visualising what the spaces would look like and how they could complement the school building. They listened comprehensively to our requirements, and then designed the playgrounds which we now have.

Our EYFS playground encompasses all areas of the Early Years Curriculum; it successfully allows children to access the arts through music and performance spaces, physical exercise is encouraged with climbing areas, and we even have a bike track which the children love cycling round and round.

In our KS1 and 2 playground, we have a beautifully designed outdoor classroom and stage, as well as music area, climbing area and MUGA fencing. The equipment successfully provides interest for children of all ages, and is clearly built to last. We are thrilled with what our outdoor spaces now offer our pupils and thank Schoolscapes for all of their inspiring ideas.’

Pear Tree Mead: “The Area is a Focus of Play and Learning”

‘Our children were involved in the process of designing the play equipment from the start. They really wanted the slide and the bridge and are overjoyed with result. When the construction team arrived at school there was great excitement and for a while the men had a large ‘fan club’ of 4 and 5 year olds who had lined up a row of chairs, and watched them whilst chanting ‘builders, builders, builders’.

The children have loved every moment of the construction and were very keen to go out each day (even though the weather was very inclement) to see what had changed since they went home.
They are thrilled with their ‘Adventure Fortress’ and again the area is a focus of play and learning in all of its forms within Early Years.’

St. Anne’s Primary School: “It was Important to us to Work with Creative Problem Solvers”

‘When undertaking such an important project within a programme of works to improve the outdoor learning environment, it was important to us to work with creative problem solvers who put the school’s needs first. We were able to stagger the works in line with different funding streams, so had the experience of two sets of installers, both were professional, friendly and hard work working. The initial salesperson was very friendly and listened to our requirements to produce a fantastic high quality fitness trail. The children love using it and the flooring surface means they can use it throughout the year.’

They have provided us with a high standard of customer support, and were able and willing to answer any of our queries.

West Green Primary School: “Set to last a long time”

‘We are really pleased with our new outdoor area, it’s great. Schoolscapes were a pleasure to deal with and we were able to discuss exactly what we wanted and make changes along the way. The products themselves look really high quality and set to last a long time. The children have been very excited using our new outdoor area and have enjoyed interacting with the musical panels. Parents and children alike have appreciated the seating and shelter and it has really smartened up the front of the school. The contractors who worked on site were brilliant and did a really professional job. All in all it has been a very positive experience and I would definitely recommend other schools get in contact with Schoolscapes when they need projects like this.’
