Big update for playtime

One Dales school has revamped its playground in a bid to get its pupils outdoors and playing hard.

The staff at Stanton in Peak CE Primary School wanted to create a playground for their pupils that would be full of vibrant and fun equipment.

They decided to install new playground equipment – designed by school ground specialist Playforce – to add some colour and excitement to their outdoor space which staff hope will inspire the children both outdoors and in the classroom.

The school purchased such items as a Thermo Plastic Netball Court, Rocket Solid Hopscotch, Dart Board, Alphabet Outline Calendar and a Solid Square Snakes and Ladders set.

A spokesman for Playforce said: Sometimes it can take a little push to get children to play and learn outdoors.

“By making the playground fun and vibrant, pupils are automatically drawn to it.”

Since installing the new playground equipment at the school, the children have been embracing new ways of learning and playing outdoors.
