Playground Developments


We are very excited to share with you the latest news on our playground developments.

Earlier this year, four companies came in to survey our current playground and put together new designs that incorporate sheltered areas and lots of different activities in both playground markings and boards.  One design really stood out for the staff and children and we are very pleased to share that work has started on the playground on Wednesday 1st December.


All the children are very excited to see the developments as they happen.  One of our lovely Foundation 2 children said 'the men are making the playground gooder' :o) 


We have to agree, we think it is going to look amazing when it is complete.  


UPDATE:  The markings on the top playground are now complete and the children have loved playing with the new markings!
