Eco Play Ground Case Study

Nancleaverne School

“Great! A new playspace that not only saves the environment but helps me too — saving time, money and energy!”

Headteacher Fiona Flindall

Playing for Success – Nancealverne School

Nancealverne School caters for pupils with severe learning disabilities in West Cornwall. Following a very successful Ofsted report, the Headteacher wanted to make further improvements to the outdoor curriculum in the early years foundation stage as play opportunities were limited by poor access.

The centre piece of the new playground is a bespoke multi-user play frame made out of recycled construction plastics. The playground equipment is designed to be accessible to pupils with a wide range of abilities and has plenty of challenges to allow pupils to get the most from their playtime.

Invisible inclusion was the main guiding principle in the overall design; The climbing frame was constructed using bright contrasting colours. An extra wide slide allows carers to play alongside pupils and there are plenty of different ways of climbing on to and off the equipment including scramble nets and climbing holds. Playful sensory elements were included such as mirrored surfaces and portholes encourage hide and seek games. Finally, the new colourful road track safety surface allows children to race around the play area on their bicycles and ensures that GreenPlay at Nancealverne is definitely noisy play!

We aim to satisfy headteachers and all our clients

After being disappointed with previous wooden installations, the Headteacher Fiona Flindall is particularly pleased with the durability and low maintenance solution provided by the use of recycled materials. She said: “Great! A new playspace that not only saves the environment but helps me too — saving time, money and energy!”
