Why did you want to develop your playground?
At Ashley Infant School we recognise the importance of incorporating exercise and outdoor play into the academic day. We run an active challenge that we encourage the pupils to take part in, in order to develop their physical skills and well-being. The children have reacted well to these challenges but we wanted to develop a playground where they could attempt a range of activities at different levels.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
The team at Playforce were really excited about our ideas for the playground and worked hard to ensure that everyone’s suggestions were incorporated in some way. Their extensive experience allowed them to be realistic and honest when discussing designs but they never suggested an idea couldn’t be done until they’d tried it. At every stage of the planning process, Playforce considered the children’s health and safety as well as fun. This created the perfect combination.
