Project – Wilbury Primary School in Edmonton enjoys shade sail in playground
Product – Maxima Sail
Requirement – Wilbury Primary School is in Edmonton in London and has nearly 1000 pupils from age 2-11. Part of the outdoor playground area is grassed and to increase the options for using it more widely, they decided to add a shade sail over the top of it. Children can now read stories, chat to friends, have lessons or just relax in this purpose made space.
Solution – Our Maxima range includes the striking Maxima shade sail and it was decided that this was the best product for the requirement at Wilbury School. The sail was constructed on four uprights and measured 3500mm x 3000mm. As an additional safety measure, two post pads in blue were added to the posts which were not adjacent to the fence. This helped to ensure that even occasional playground bumps were kept to a minimum.
Result – The children at Wilbury School are fortunate to have a nice outside space. They can now enjoy more fresh air and outside time, regardless of what the weather happens to be doing. Ofsted recognise the importance of outdoor learning and the options for this are increased by offering shade and shelter to part of the garden. A win win for pupils, parents and pupils at this lovely school.
