The Cheadle College in Manchester Cover Outdoor Area
Claremont High School had ‘space’ for outdoor dining but no ‘shade’ or ‘shelter’. They pride themselves on providing the best environment possible for their pupils so a designated dining canopy was something that we helped them design for their campus.
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
A&S Landscape installed a large canopy from our Motiva Duo range. It measured 23,236mm x 12,384mm, had opal roofing and steelwork in Marine Blue (RAL 5002).
The children were delighted to have a new space to enjoy. No more worrying about finding a seat to eat their lunch. Now they can socialise and eat at their leisure, encouraging social interaction and better eating habits. As we all know, when children have eaten well they can concentrate better and this leads to improved focus and learning. All this from a new canopy. A great result!
There is a lot of research that shows us the merits of spending time outside; alleviating heart rate, blood pressure, stress hormones and muscle tension. It can even brighten your mood. enhancements in attention, memory and concentration have also been proved.
How does this effect children in school? Well, being inside for most of the day is linked to increased anxiety and depression. Couple this with the appeal of computer games and social media at home and you can see how important it is to offer children as many opportunities to be outdoors during the school day as possible.
Spending time outdoors raises Vitamin D levels (an important hormone that helps to protect against a collection of diseases such as osteoporosis, depression, heart attacks and stroke). It is shown in research that many of us do not get an adequate amount of this important vitamin, so more time outside is central to help address this deficiency.
With pupil numbers increasing in many schools, adding an outdoor dining area is something that we are seeing more and more schools doing. Creating new space on the school campus without adding a formal building or requiring planning permission. Definitely worth considering if your pupils are struggling to find a seat at lunchtime.
From Shade Sails, Umbrellas and Tepees, to straight or curved roof steel canopies, A&S Landscape have a range which is sure to offer you something special. Our Maxima Plaza is a popular fabric roof canopy, which is ideal for creating an outdoor dining area. We can help you from the beginning planning stages, right through to installation.
