Godalming College add Umbrella Canopies in Surrey
Warren Wood Primary School, in Stockport in Cheshire is a primary school where the children come first. Giving them the right environment to learn in is what everyone here strives for.
Ultramarine Blue - RAL NO. 5002
When the option to add a nice matching canopy to a rather bland entrance area came up, the school was keen to make the most of the space. They contacted A&S Landscape, who work primarily in the education sector, and we were able to talk through a range of options.
The decision was to add a Motiva Cantilever canopy. Not only did the canopy look smart in this space, but it also provided shade and shelter to anyone waiting to use the entrance. Also, it created space for some seating. Always welcome in a primary school setting, teachers, parents, children, everyone enjoys time outside and fresh air.
Multiple studies support that children’s outdoor play is required for their healthy development and academic performance. This matter spotlights the benefits of outdoor play in early childhood on physical health, mental well-being, and social and cognitive development. It also reveals the need to change the trends so that children can have daily access to outdoor play. The extensive interventions required to reduce parents’ fears require practitioners’ training, policy changes and improved urban planning for safer environments and natural play spaces. That is a huge task that will take multiple years to achieve. However, there are ways that schools can intervene, to help children in attaining their key repeated experience with high quality unstructured outdoor play opportunities, which will help their development and academic performance.
Everyone was pleased to see the transformation of the entrance area. The staff have told us that the children use it every day, which exactly what we wanted to hear. We are delighted to have helped Warren Wood Primary School make this lovely addition to their site and we have plenty more ideas up our sleeve when they think of another area which needs a canopy or shelter. We also installed a secure shelter in Stockport, at Dial Park Primary School.
“Really happy with it, communication was great. The children are under it every day!”
