Outdoor Seating Area at Norton In Hales Primary School Shropshire

When we installed this colourful outdoor seating canopy in Norton in Hales, Shropshire we knew it would have an impact and it did.

Project Specification

  • Product: Motiva Mono™
  • Size: 3000mm x 2000mm
  • Steelwork:
    • Yellow

  • Roof:
    • Clear

Norton in Hales Primary School opted for a cute Motiva Mono, 3000mm x 2000mm in a bright, sunshine yellow that means even the dullest of days are punctuated by a splash of vivid colour.

But it’s not there to just look pretty (even if it does that very well). It’s there to provide a dry seating area, a place to sit whatever the weather.

“On behalf of Norton-in-Hales C.E Primary School, I would like to thank A&S Landscape for our new canopy and seating which has been installed in our playground. The children are making great use of the canopy, especially in bad weather. Thanks again.”

How does childhood obesity negatively effect children and what can schools and parents do to combat this?

Childhood obesity and linked health issues, such as diabetes are often preventable. On this basis, the WHO prioritises the prevention of these conditions in youth, particularly because poor dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle are among the key causes of noncommunicable diseases. These conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and particular types of cancer, substantially lead to the global burden of disease, death and disability.

In addition, many important studies argue that overweight and obesity in childhood can negatively effect a child’s executive function and academic potential. Children who are overweight encounter a greater level of bullying amongst peers as well as experiences that lower their esteem, as a result posing a risk of developing underdeveloped social and emotional factors in children. Social and emotional factors and poor academic experiences that can impact a child through to adulthood.
