George Mitchell Primary School in Derbyshire install fabric school canopies
George Mitchell Primary School in Belper, Derbyshire is an all-through school. The primary school were seeking shade and shelter for their playground. They wanted something fun to add to the space, something colourful, something that would create areas which the children could use for a number of different activities. More than just shade from the sunshine in summer they wanted something that also provided shelter from the wet weather in winter.
There are so many different school canopy designs to choose from. George Mitchell School were delighted to work with A&S Landscape to run through the benefits of each one. Eventually, they decided to install two canopies, one Umbrella 4m x 4m and one Tepee 3m x 3m. Both canopies benefitted from PVC fabric which is waterproof to provide all year-round shelter. There are many fabric colours to choose from and in this case they opted for Beige and Aniseed against White (RAL 9010) steelwork. Both structures were finished with Amber post pads for optimal protection.
The playground looks very smart with the new canopies. The children can use them all year round for an endless number of different activities. They may choose to have a story safe from the sunshine or games at break times, even a picnic. Children have such a vivid imagination, they may even become space ships or rockets, who knows!
