Curved Roof Canopy at Beechgrove Junior School Oswestry
Greentrees Primary School is an outstanding primary school in Salisbury and it says the following of itself “Greentrees is a vibrant, outstanding school where we truly believe that learning should be fun. We aim to create a happy environment where all children can thrive and achieve success.” It was the chance to enjoy the outdoor environment which led the school to investigate the options for adding a playground canopy.
Dusty Grey - RAL NO. 7037
With more than 40 years’ experience and hundreds of happy schools under their belt, A&S Landscape knew that they would have just the right product for Greentrees Primary School. The Maxima Tepee was selected as the best solution and we installed the canopy at a size of 6000mm x 6000mm. The datasheet for this design can be downloaded on our website for free. It was completed with waterproof PVC fabric. The posts were Grey (RAL 7037) and the fabric roofing was Green (RAL 6016). See more in our colour range.
A common but under-researched realm of social and emotional development in children is appreciating the importance of spending time outside and how substantial the effects are. For such a vital component of childhood, the gaps in research here are somewhat staggering. Not least because, the research that currently exists indicates that there is unmistakable evidence that outdoor time, like outdoor play, or outdoor classrooms, has a considerable positive impact on a child’s social and emotional development. These developing studies come from various disciplines using a wide range of approaches that all lead to the same stance.
The resulting canopy looks very striking, adding a very modern statement to the playground. The children are keen to use it for playtimes and lesson times and the school said the following “Fabulous, we are very happy. The children are delighted with the canopy and used it in the brief spell of sunny weather as well as on a couple of rainy days!” We also installed fabric tepee canopy at Rhiwbeina Primary School in Cardiff.
A&S Landscape has many canopies to offer. In the gallery you can see more than 1000 images of our projects, take a look for inspiration.
