School Playground Case Studies

Active playtimes ahead for St Mary’s Early Years

The Early Years and Key Stage 1 children at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Ulverston had a large tarmac play area to let off steam in but not really any equipment. Class 1 teacher Lena Parker told us that their little ones very much loved to climb and like all children in this stage also enjoy any role play opportunities. So we looked at and discussed a few ranges and equipment types that we thought would fit the bill and suit the age range (approximately 4-7).

Rigby Hall School are revelling in their revamped outdoor space!

Rigby Hall School is an all age special school taking pupils between the ages of four and nineteen, with moderate or severe learning difficulties. They arranged to meet their local Playdale Area Manager for a free, no-obligation design and consultancy meeting. The school was impressed from the outset with the discussions and subsequent design proposals presented back. Headteacher Tracey Smith said they were “Beyond our expectations.”

Playing, excitement and fun galore at Ganton School

“Playdale’s Area Manager Becky Warren listened to the features we wanted to put into the playground and came up with a design which included everything, she was on call and responded quickly to any concerns or queries. The overall product is perfectly designed for the needs of our children.” Fiona Taylor, EYFS Teacher, Ganton School.

"From point of contact to point of installation the process could not have gone any easier and more pleasurable. The children love what has been installed and I loved the fact that it required little effort from me!”

Nick Hutchings, Head Teacher, St. John’s C of E Primary School

"We have had the Playdale Shimmy installed for a year now and we wanted to say how fantastic it has been for our 60 Reception children in their outdoor space. It provided hours of enjoyment, stimulation and challenge." They can use the fireman pole with one hand and make shapes with their bodies. Our Year 1 children were very jealous."

Alex Tate, Head of School, Grazebrook Primary School

"The installation was completed on time and to the specification agreed. The team worked through all weathers to complete the work, were polite and worked around the school's requirements. I would recommend Playdale to anyone thinking of improving their outdoor spaces."
