Great Barr Medical Centre in Birmingham Add Entrance Canopies
Slate Grey - RAL NO. 7015
Opal Green - RAL NO. 6026
Welshampton C of E Primary School in Ellesmere, Shropshire wanted to add some shade and shelter to an area of their playing fields. This would allow the pupils to enjoy quality time in the outdoor space and fresh air on a more regular basis. Because the school is based in such a beautiful area, it was important that the canopy would work with the surrounding environment. Local company, A&S Landscape, was asked to design, manufacture and install the primary school canopy.
The A&S Landscape team quickly decided that our Maxima Tepee™ fabric canopy would be the ideal addition to the primary school. The overall canopy measures 6000mm x 6000mm, the modular structure has created plenty of covered space on the playing field. To match the school’s logo, the fabric roof was made with an Opal Green coloured material. This works well with the Slate Grey Dura Coat™ uprights.
So that the tepee could be used all year round, we made the roof with a PVC waterproof fabric. This means the pupils can shelter underneath the canopy from the rain, sun or even snow. If Welshampton C of E Primary School wanted to increase the functionality of the tepee further, they could add side panels and heating and lighting. Post Protector pads could also be added as an extra layer of protection.
It’s safe to say that Welshampton C of E Primary School in Shropshire is very happy with the fabric canopy, it is a lovely addition to the site. It has become the perfect play area for the pupils, as they protected from any rain and harmful UV rays. The outdoor shelter is regularly used during break times and during lessons too, as teachers gain the opportunity to take their classes outside. Play equipment can also be stored under the tepee, which will save valuable storage space inside. As well as a playground shelter, our tepees are also used as dining areas at schools.
“A&S Landscape was a very efficient and professional company to work with. Because they worked so quickly, we were able to apply and secure a grant for the project.”
Welshampton C of E Primary School is located near Ellesmere, in Shropshire. This local school has been judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted since 2006 and federated with Newtown C.E. Primary School in May 2016. The school ensures that every pupil is happy and are able to achieve their full potential with the help of the dedicated teachers.
Based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire this school was a local project to us and so was close to heart. We hope that this lovely school enjoys their playground canopy for many years to come and helps more pupils to achieve their full potential. We’ve also had the opportunity to complete more similar projects in Shropshire, Whitchurch and Telford too.
Primary schools use our canopies for a wide range of applications as our designs are versatile and robust. Below we will run through just some of the most popular uses.
Play Area Shelter
Often our structures are used as a play area shelter, which helps your pupils spend more quality time outside during the school day. A straight roof canopy could be the perfect addition to your outdoor area, we also offer straight coloured polycarbonate roof designs to add a real standout feature to the space. Our colour school shelters are effective at adding a pop of colour to any area, which also encourages your pupils to play under the shelter too.
Make a great first impression by adding an entrance canopy to your reception area. This can help to frame your entranceway and make it clear for visitors to know where to go. And if you use an inter-comm system, your guests can stay nice and dry while they wait to enter the building. Pick from our Motiva Entro™ curved roof canopy or straight polycarbonate roof canopy the Motiva Entrada™.
Outdoor learning is becoming more popular amongst schools and is even recognised by Ofsted. Our shelters allow your teachers to take their classes outside without having to plan around the weather forecast. Help your pupils learn about the natural world around them by letting them experience it first-hand – there’s no better way of creating an engaging lesson.
Health is adversely affected by not getting ample exercise, causing increasing rates of obesity in children and adolescents. Children are not playing outside as much as they did previously, restricting their exposure to sunlight and thus the development of Vitamin D which helps to battle infection and keeps skin healthy. Sunlight also helps to control the development of melatonin which regulates sleep. Phones and tablets emit harmful blue light, which can cause headaches and eye strain. Blue light in the evenings can even restrict the development of melatonin, which in turn can make falling asleep very challenging for some children.
