Case Study: Colebrook Junior School – Outdoor Quiet Area
Colebrook Junior School – Outdoor Quiet Area
Colebrook Junior School in Swindon has recently had a new outdoor area created for their pupils. The school wanted to improve the outdoor facilities and the products selected creates a designated quiet area within a courtyard. The new area provides an opportunity for pupils to engage in outdoor learning and fun.
Hand Made Places installed a variety of products to create a stimulating and fun outdoor learning area including a Storytelling Circle, Mini Maze seating and a Single Tier Stage, all of which contribute to improving communication and social skills.
A Shade Sail Canopy was also included within the outdoor area to provide shelter from UV rays, allowing pupils to be outside in the sunshine.
The outdoor area was completed with bound rubber mulch and artificial grass for the surfacing. Picket fencing combined with an engraved archway and large planters create a welcoming entrance to the Colebrook Quiet Area.
