Waterproof Umbrella for Ashgate School Derby

Ashgate School is a co-educational primary school, ranging in pupil age from 4-11 years old. All of the children love their huge playground area and enjoy running off their energy at break times. After a hard morning learning maths or an afternoon’s phonics, the children enjoy some fresh air and space outdoors.

Project Specification

What primary age children don’t relish is the dreaded ‘indoor play’ or indeed those days when the sun is too hot. It is on these days that their new large 8m x 8m Umbrella shade comes into its own.

With one central post, the Umbrella is the perfect design, keeping posts to a minimum whilst optimising shade and shelter. The children have the option to have lessons outdoors if they want to now. Imagine storytime in the summer breeze, sheltered from the sun’s UV rays but enjoying the sound of birdsong and natural daylight. The perfect way to enhance the curriculum.

A&S Landscape specialises in a range of high-quality, commercial-grade canopies. There are many different designs available, all in high quality materials. These range from Shade SailsUmbrellas and Tepees, to straight or curved roof steel canopies. A&S Landscape has a range which is sure to offer you something special. Feel free to look through our gallery, which has more than 1500 images to inspire you.

How to keep your school playground safe and why this is so crucial

Playground areas and any outdoor play equipment is a superb way to give your pupils a healthy way to get a break from the classroom. Pupils getting exercise at the same time as their friends is something that schools should certainly advocate, but it’s also very important that the fun isn’t ruined by a child getting hurt while using the playground.

Playgrounds can become dangerous for a wide variety of different reasons. Unsafe behaviour is definitely something that teachers and students alike should be on the lookout for. But alongside protecting children from the elements, uneven and improper surfaces can also cause injuries – and unsafe or unsound outdoor equipment can instantly turn the fun sour.
