Sowe Valley Primary School in Coventry has committed staff who work tirelessly to help their children develop into “wonderful young people who can make their way confidently in the world.” Headteacher. Part of their commitment must be to provide an environment where the pupils can enjoy the outdoors because just look at the super space that they have created!

A&S Landscaped worked with Sowe Valley to add a 5x5m StarSail to their outdoor play area. Supported on a single upright, the chances of bumps are minimised, whilst the shade and shelter provided are optimised. It sits beautifully in the centre of the fenced playground which has soft flooring. What a lovely space for the children to play, explore, socialise and learn.

Learning outside the classroom is key and something that Ofsted are looking at in their evaluations. Now Sowe Valley can well and truly tick this box. Fantastic!

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

Childhood obesity and related diseases, such as diabetes are typically avoidable. For this reason, the WHO prioritises the prevention of these conditions in youth, particularly because bad dietary habits and a inactive lifestyle are among the major causes of noncommunicable diseases. These conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and particular types of cancer, substantially give rise to the global strain of disease, death and disability.
