“This is the second time that we have worked with The School Playground Company and the entire process from design to finished build has been so easy and so enjoyable! This is not something I can usually say about contract work. Chris and his team are professional, organised and friendly.”
J Wallace – Headteacher
St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Whitnash, Royal Leamington Spa wanted to develop a small corner of their existing playground into a new Storytelling Area for their Key Stage 1 pupils. The School invited The School Playground Company the opportunity to quote for the first phase of the Story Telling Area, which was to supply and lay new Artificial Play Grass to the existing tarmac playground surface.
Storytelling Area Key Phase 1 – Artificial Grass Surface
Initially The School Playground Company were chosen to lay its 24mm Pile High Play Grass, with cushioning 10mm roll out shock-pad and wheelchair friendly ramped rubber edging detail, to fix down on the existing tarmac playground surface.
Storytelling Area Phase 2 – Primary School Storytelling Furniture
A few months later, after the installation of the playground grass St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School once again asked The School Playground Company to return to the playground to complete its Key Stage 1 Storytelling area and to add items from its School storytelling furniture range. The School chose A Storytelling Chair, Rubber Topped Colourful Seating Mushrooms, Portable Artificial Grass Topped Seating Cubes and the 1.5m Timber Backless Benches.
“They happily worked with us to manage access to the playground during building works and were extremely efficient and effective in their work. I find myself looking forward to working with SPC for many years to come.”
The results looked fantastic! The School Playground Company had transformed an unused piece of Tarmac playground surface into this amazing Key Stage 1 Storytelling area. The playground project was completed on time and on budget. All of the work was carried out during school time, by The School Playground Comany’s DBS checked installation and surfacing teams. The Children and Staff at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Whitnash were delighted with the results.
