Outdoor PE all year round is now a reality at a primary school in Greater Manchester since the installation of an all-weather sports pitch.
Oakfield Primary School in Hyde wanted to improve their outdoor play provision in particular giving greater opportunity for their children to be able 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 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 lunch times with the ball court being used for free play as well as curriculum activities.
Fawns, which supplies inspirational play for parks, schools & nurseries, turned to sports fencing expert Zaun for the MUGA fencing.
Clamp bar covering panel ends ensures a safe playing surface with no sharp edges.
