With such a smart school building, adding a canopy to complement was a lovely project to undertake. Roman Way First School in Royston, Hertfordshire, had a large, enclosed playground area which is now very well used because of its new school canopy.
The school say of themselves, “Roman Way First School has a clear understanding of how children learn and continually work to provide the best possible conditions to facilitate this.” They certainly had this in mind when they invested in a canopy which shelters and shades their pupils, adding more opportunity to learn and play outdoors.
The canopy follows the line of the school building and gives them space to store toys and equipment as well as making sure that they can play outside no matter what the weather. Just to have somewhere to store all those wet wellies when the children come indoors, must have made a big difference.
A&S Landscape worked with the school to decide on the best product for the new school canopy. Our Motiva range has a cantilever straight roof canopy which followed the line of the building to provide shelter right around the courtyard play area. Children love to be outdoors as we know and now they don’t have to worry about the weather. They also have space to store their wellies when they come inside, no more soggy classroom carpets.
The canopy has created shade and shelter so that the children can play and learn outdoors all year round. Also, the option to store materials and toys away from the weather means that more space has been made available inside. The playground area looks really smart too, the grey steelwork complements the school building and completes the space beautifully. A really lovely design.
There are many different designs available, all in high-quality materials. These range from, Umbrellas and Tepees, to straight or curved roof steel canopies. A&S Landscape has a range which is sure to offer you something special. Feel free to look through our gallery, which has more than 1500 images to inspire you.
