Cover for Play Space at Ditton Primary School Liverpool
Springwell Academy opened in April 2019 and supports young people with their academic, social and emotional development. The academy provides staff with the chance to deliver engaging, creative and bespoke learning opportunities. A&S Landscape was asked to install a brand-new straight roof canopy to further improve the academy’s facilities.
Grey - RAL 7037
A Motiva Linear canopy measuring 6200mm X 2500mm was chosen and fitted alongside the school building. Opal roofing was selected to allow the sunlight in while providing protection from UV rays. The academy chose a Blue Grey RAL colour for the framework, which complements the rest of the site. The new canopy can be used as a covered area for queuing, playing, eating and walking.
As we know, the school-age population has been growing. The amount of five to ten year old pupils in primary schools increased by 446,000 (13%) within 2010 and 2016.
The Department for Education has the duty to create the 420,000 new school places that are required between 2016 and 2021 and there are lots of ways that this can be achieved. New schools are being built, free schools are being funded and existent schools are receiving capital funding to uphold, upgrade and enlarge facilities. With capital being overstretched, one way that schools are using this capital funding is to make the most of their outside space. Whether to build new classrooms or to add sheltered spaces which can have no end of different uses.
Some applications of outdoor sheltered areas include:
• Alfresco dining areas
• All-weather sports pitches
• Outdoor classroom
• Cycle Store
• Outdoor theatre

The students of Springwell Academy now have a sheltered area which they can enjoy throughout the year. They can use the space to socialise, relax and enjoy the fresh air come rain or shine. This means the students will feel refreshed and ready to learn after their breaks. The positive effects of the new canopy are likely to impact the entire academy, staff and parents. A&S Landscape was proud to have worked with Springwell Academy, who’s important work aims to improve so many young people’s futures.
