Motiva Linear™

The beautiful, multicoloured polycarbonate roof brightens up even the cloudiest days and has completed the space. It really demonstrates St Mary’s Church of England Primary School’s understanding of the importance of outdoor play and their dedication to their pupils.

What was the project brief?

St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Beverley wanted to find the perfect canopy for their Early Years foundation stage outdoor area. They needed a model that was out of the ordinary and exciting – something to catch peoples’ eye and bring more cheer to the space. Also, they wanted it to provide protection all year round for the pupils playing beneath it, allowing them to enjoy the outside in all weathers.

A&S Landscape was thrilled to be contacted by the school and soon got to work helping them choose a shelter to suit their needs.

What was our playground canopy solution?

Shelter we designed for St Mary's CE SchoolThe Motiva Linear™ was put forward as a potential playground canopy cover, and – upon finding out that they could get hold of a version with a coloured roof – the school loved this idea. They thought that the bright colours of this versatile, straight roof canopy were lively and fun, and would inspire such traits in the children playing in the new outdoor area. The model was built to measure 5m x 5m, and boasted Ultramarine Blue steelwork alongside the myriad of shades on the striped, multicoloured roof, which would set off the murals of their existing play area nicely. The sturdy design with a Dura-coat™ finish would also ensure that it would shield pupils enjoying breaks from the classroom for many years.

What results did the shelter offer?

The free standing canopy went above and beyond the school’s expectations. It expanded their facilities for outdoor activities so that the children can be free to play outdoors without the staff worrying about the weather. The beautiful, multicoloured polycarbonate roof brightens up even the cloudiest days and has completed the space. It really demonstrates St Mary’s Church of England Primary School’s understanding of the importance of outdoor play and their dedication to their pupils. A&S Landscape was proud to have supplied the children with a coloured roof canopy to stimulate their senses and imagination.

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

Children are ordinarily not in control of the food they consume or the exercise they do. On top of that, when they exercise, the respiratory implications and body weakness can result in embarrassment amongst their peers as they struggle to move. Nonetheless, it is necessary to aid healthier eating, more exercise, and assist a child who lives with obesity in battling the depression, anxiety, stigma, and the health and academic complications associated with obesity, which is a task much more substantial than it first looks to be.

We can define some of the solutions Dame Sally Davies includes in her report: Time To Solve Childhood Obesity into three factors.
