Newmarket Academy decided to add a canopy to their campus to create a sheltered area for their special education needs (SEN) students. A&S Landscape thoroughly enjoyed transforming the site into a much-loved play area.
A large straight canopy was installed alongside the school building. The Motiva Linear features marine blue steelwork which works perfectly with the surroundings. The students are also protected underneath the shelter from UV rays thanks to the opal polycarbonate roofing. Plenty of covered space has been created as the canopy measures a total of 16000mm x 9000mm.
Now the SEN students at Newmarket Academy have a dedicated outside area they can use all-year-round. Break and lunchtimes can be spent outdoors, allowing the students to enjoy some fresh air no matter the weather. This helps them to relax and refresh ahead of their next lessons, and to let off some steam. The school buildings will also be relieved of pressure as there are now more options during wet weather days.
It’s great that so many schools are recognising the importance of providing an outdoor sheltered space. Canopies are a great cost-effective way of keeping the playgrounds accessible all-year-round. They also provide an alternative learning environment, which helps to engage students and create memorable lessons.
