Outdoor PE all year round is now a reality at a primary school in Greater Manchester since installing an all-weather sports pitch.
Oakfield Primary School in Hyde wanted to improve their outdoor play provision, particularly giving their children greater opportunity to play a range of sports in a designated area away from the main playground.
They appointed Farnborough-based Fawns Recreational Services Ltd to install a 20m x 12m Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) with a polymeric surface.
The new court has allowed the school to run PE lessons outdoor all year round and has reduced pressure on the playground during break and lunchtimes, with the ball court being used for free play and curriculum activities.
Fawns, which supplies inspirational play for parks, schools & nurseries, turned to sports fencing expert Zaun for the MUGA fencing.
The MUGA incorporates Zaun’s Duo6 and Duo8 twin wire fencing range, with recessed goals hiding exits from the ends and basketball posts, backboards and hoops at either end above the goals.
Clamp bar covering panel ends ensures a safe playing surface with no sharp edges.
