School canopy at Hawksworth CE Primary School in Yorkshire
School canopy adds outdoor space at primary school in Yorkshire
Hawksworth CE Primary School in Leeds wanted to add some outdoor space which could be used all year round. Children would have improved access to fresh air, outdoor learning or just playtime with friends, even if the heavens opened or the sun was shining.
When A&S Landscape were contacted by the school they were happy to talk through their range of canopy solutions. The school decided to go with a Motiva Duo, curved roof canopy. The canopy was installed in Moss Green (RAL 6005) steelwork, with opal polycarbonate roofing. It spanned an area of 6100mm x 6000mm. The area also benefited from 37 meter square of rubber surfacing as well as plastic fencing which has enclosed three sides of the canopy.
The resulting area has added a new usable space to the school. It not only offers shelter from the wet weather but also shade in the sunnier months of the year. The children as well as teachers and visitors enjoy the new part of the playground. The comments about it have been very positive we are glad to hear! Improving access to outdoor play and learning can only be a good thing and has shown to improve pupil concentration when pupils are back in lessons.
