Project – Fabric canopies create outdoor area to be proud of in Chesterfield
Requirement – Hasland Junior School is a very popular and successful three form entry school on the outskirts of Chesterfield in Derbyshire. They say on their website “We are very proud of our superb outdoor space! We have a large playground used for a variety of playground games and housing an ‘outdoor classroom’. In addition, there is a climbing frame, soft play areas, wooden outdoor stage and various places for children to sit quietly.” The requirement for shade and shelter for this super space was what drove Hasland Junior School to A&S Landscape.
Solution – The school added not one but two canopies to their playground, both fabric canopies from the Maxima range. The first canopy was a hexagonal Shade Sail which has created a lovely outdoor classroom. The second, an Umbrella canopy, 4m x 4m, in matching Yellow (RAL 1003) steelwork and Victoria Blue PVC fabric. The waterproof fabric ensured that the areas were sheltered and shaded all year round.
Result – Hasland Junior School now has a lovely outdoor space to be proud of. Their children have areas which they can use on the hottest or wettest days of the year. They have options for outside lessons, storytimes, snack times or just chatting times. We all know how happy kids are to be outside so the children at this school are very fortunate to have so many spaces to enjoy.
