Why You Need an Outdoor Canopy for Your School

School canopies are used to create more usable covered space around school sites.

Some of the most common uses include:

Shelters are popular with both primary and secondary schools as there are a wide range of designs, colours, and sizes available on the market.

They also help students to spend more time outdoors in the fresh air, as they can be protected from a range of weather conditions.

Schools catering for younger children including infant schools, playgroups, and nurseries, often require an outdoor covered play area to ensure free flow play is possible in all weathers.

This has shown to have multiple benefits to young children’s development, so shouldn’t be overlooked.

With larger class sizes and increasing numbers, many schools welcome the addition of an outdoor classroom allowing teaching to be extended into the playground whatever the weather.

Each canopy provides a covered teaching area that has all-weather protection – just one of the many upsides of waterproof canopies for schools.

The Benefits of Canopies for Schools

Investing in a school canopy can bring countless benefits to both pupils and teachers.

Whatever your requirements, a canopy can bring great value, flexibility, and a stylish solution to your school.

Still unsure? Here are just some of the reasons why a school canopy is a worthwhile investment.

Safety Assured

When parents leave their children at the school gates, they want to ensure they are in safe hands. While we don’t want to wrap our children in cotton wool, we want to ensure that avoidable harm is avoided.

An outdoor canopy is able to keep the ground dry – greatly reducing the risk of slipping, preventing skinned knees or other bumps.

As kids are rarely put off by the weather when it comes to running around, they can do this quite safely underneath the covered area.

High-Quality Protection, Whatever the Weather

All canopies by A&S Landscape are designed to withstand the full force of the British weather.

The full potential of your outdoor canopy is defined by this very feature – without an effective shelter, the canopy will have no value.

With A&S Landscape, you can rest assured that whatever shelter you choose, the final product will be long-lasting and provide maximum protection.

Outside Play, Every Day

Parents will be thankful that their children can spend time outside, as this is beneficial to their development. They’ll also be pleased with tiring out the kids who have boundless energy.

An outside covered area can double as a waiting area for parents, too!

But the applications of school canopies don’t end there. They can also be used as a play area, dining area, or teaching area. Whatever your requirements are, an outdoor canopy for schools is a flexible solution to your needs.

Glee with Three: Leeds West Academy Adds Three New Canopies

umbrella canopy leeds west academyBased in Leeds, Leeds West Academy was searching for the perfect shelter solution to create more outdoor seating options. The team decided a trio of canopies would be the right way to achieve this.

They chose a mixture of polycarbonate and fabric designs that would give the students a variety of options whilst still complementing the rest of the school grounds.

The new outdoor canopy for this school provided seating canopies, which has given the students the chance to be out in the fresh air, every single day no matter the weather.

They are now able to sit and chat with friends, refuel with snacks at break time, and eat their lunch under a range of stunning shelters.
