Project Details

The Brier Special School in Kingswinford, West Midlands are proud to have been rated outstanding by Ofsted since 2008. The special school enjoys being able to teach children and see them learn and explore outside as often as the weather will allow. Unfortunately this was always at the mercy of the British weather, until they decided to install a Covered MUGA! A covered sports area now allows children in West Midlands special school all year round outdoor play.

The new space has been affectionately called “The PlayZone”. The PlayZone is used by all the children in lots of different ways. The youngest children in key stage 1 use the area to ride trikes and bikes. They play quick cricket, 5 a side football, have relay races and have they have even been known to hold sponsored walks. The PlayZone hosted a Winter Wonderland event prior to Christmas 2017.

With so many options it is being well used by the pupils and the wider community. During the summer, The Orchard Trust, a charity supporting children with learning difficulties, uses the area for summer school. The Brier School are very proud of their covered MUGA PlayZone.

From Shade Sails, Umbrellas and Tepees, to straight or curved roof steel canopies, A&S Landscape have a range which is sure to offer you something special. We can help you from the beginning planning stages, right through to installation. Feel free to look through our gallery, which has more than 1500 images to inspire you.

Review

Dear Sirs

“Different classes use the PlayZone in rotation when the weather is poor, meaning that everyone has the chance of some fresh air and exercise. It took more than two years planning because of the size and design. The children are loving the PlayZone and a little bit of outside time each day helps with their concentration levels as well as their fitness.”
