Covered Play Area In Pontrennau, Cardiff

Posted on 08/08/2016

Pontprennau Primary
Outdoor spaces empower students, increase engagement and offers teachers the chance to alter the learning experience so finding ways to creatively delineate space and also produce more all-weather outside areas is really important.

Project – Pontrennau Primary School.

Product – Maxima Sail

Requirement – Good old British Weather, we haven’t quite figured out how to stop that so covered outdoor play areas are incredibly important in any kind of school building design and nothing adds space quicker than an outdoor shelter.

Outdoor spaces empower students, increase engagement and offers teachers the chance to alter the learning experience so finding ways to creatively delineate space and also produce more all-weather outside areas is really important.

Solution –That’s why Pontrennau Primary School in Cardiff, one of Wales newest Primary Schools (opened in September 2015) opted for an A&S Landscape shaded area outside a classroom, formed by a 5M x 5M waterproof shade sail in a bright Buttercup Yellow, calling us in to give them the flexibility they were looking to add.

Result – Now, Pontrennau Primary School has a new flexible outside space, offering an additional learning and covered play space whatever the weather, giving their students all the benefits of spending more quality time outside, from increased Vitamin D to lower chance of depression and anxiety.

Taking more time outside, in fresh air and natural light has an incredibly diverse array of benefits, from affecting our mood to demonstrable differences in student achievement.

But, the reality is, without covered outdoor play space, without some playground shelter we lose the use of our outside space for large portions of the year. There’s that British weather again!
