Playground Canopy Extension Oundle Primary School Peterborough

Oundle Primary School is incredibly child-centred. If a decision needs to be made then they’ll always ask if it is in the best interests of the children at the school or not. Ranked as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, they are rightly proud of their environment and they continue to deliver a first class education to their pupils. The whole school exudes a sense of purpose and has an exciting buzz.

It’s that energy that is constantly translated into the school environment and means attention to detail is a big thing here.

All of this means that when A&S Landscape was asked to install a new Motiva Linear playground canopy extension, we had some high standards to meet!

We installed a Motiva Linear canopy at 21700mm x 2960mm and 15800mm x 7950mm to beautifully surround the outside of Oundle Primary School along two walls.

This shelter was also finished off with a vibrant and fun polycarbonate roof. In Clear, Mint and Daffodil, Oundle have themselves an outstanding canopy to go with their outstanding school.

The rising issue of childhood obesity and what we can do to help children at home and in school

Children are typically not in charge of the food they eat or the exercise they take. What’s more, when they exercise, the respiratory implications and body weakness can contribute to embarrassment amongst their peers as they find it difficult to move. Nonetheless, it is essential to endorse healthier eating, more exercise, and assist a child who lives with obesity in combating the depression, anxiety, stigma, and the health and academic issues related with obesity, which is a task much more critical than it first appears.

We can clarify some of the fixes Dame Sally Davies outlines in her report: Time To Solve Childhood Obesity into three factors.

• Children need to play outside.

• Children need access to healthy foods.

• Strategies need to be practised by schools, manufacturers, health services, town planners and politicians to create better opportunities for children to have access to outdoor play and healthy food regardless of their social-economic status.

Discover how we can accomplish these aims and more over on our full article page.
