Case Study

School Grounds

Schools and nurseries want to make the most out their external areas but sometimes need advice and guidance on how to do it. They are looking for inspiring playgrounds that incorporate play, natural elements, learning zones, food growing that all encourage imagination.

With a team of experts in playground design, natural play and outdoor learning workshops, we’re able to offer our clients this support and guidance.

We help with activity ideas, health and safety, staff motivation, installation of equipment, best use of grounds, the creation of habitats and management of woodland. Everything you need to take the indoors to the outdoors.

We can also offer help and support with completing funding applications in conjunction with your school or we can apply on your behalf. There are a variety of funding sources available, including ‘Awards for All’ which schools use quite frequently and is a relatively straight forward funding application and process. This particular stream offers grants of up to £10,000.
