Why did you want to develop your playground?
We really enjoy outdoor learning and play at Hallmoor Special School but when the sun disappears it’s difficult to encourage pupils to head into the playground. We wanted to develop our outdoor space so that it could be used whatever the weather and the children could get the benefits of being outdoors without having to contend with rain and grey skies.
What were the key elements that made Playforce stand out from other providers?
Playforce has a great range of play equipment and we were impressed with the brochure. We spotted the shelters that they sell and knew that this could offer our pupils the outdoor learning experience they need. It looked natural and would blend well with the school’s surroundings. The octagonal roof would give us the opportunity to use the playground in bright sunshine and on rainy days.
