The mental health and wellbeing department wanted to create a outside sheltered space for their pupils to use. A&S Landscape worked closely with Thomas A Becket Junior School to design a canopy which met all of their requirements.
A Maxima Tepee was installed at the school, measuring 5m X 5m. The fabric shelter features dusty grey steelwork and a white roof. Made with a waterproof PVC material, the tepee can be used all-year-round and protects against both the sun and rain.
The school has added benches to the area, so there is plenty of room for several people to gather at once. Now when the pupils need some time in the fresh air, they have a dedicated area they can go to. The staff from the mental health department can hold talks and meet ups under the tepee, without having to worry about the weather.
It’s well-known that spending time outside during the day can have many benefits on your wellbeing. We think it’s fantastic that Thomas A Becket Junior School has invested in their pupil’s mental health facilities. What a great way of teaching the children to open up and focus on their mental health than with a specially designed area.
A&S Landscape has worked with many schools across the country, suppling canopies, shade sails and shelters. Our products can be used for a variety of purposes to help you get better use of your outside space. Take a look at our gallery for more inspiration or call our friendly team on 01743 444100.
