Playground Equipment for Primary Schools

Play is an important element of primary education, supporting little ones as they transition from early years surroundings. We build play equipment that can be used as tools for encouraging confidence and independence as children find their way through a time of change in their lives.

Play equipment is a great medium for youngsters to make connections, apply their own knowledge to situations and develop resilience through trial and error.

Our collection of play towers, sensory equipment and furniture is perfect for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 environments.

Play units are aimed at encouraging children of all abilities and those with different interests to get moving.

They include contrasting features at various heights and levels to support inclusive play and allow children the freedom to engage in activities they enjoy, as well as benefit from new experiences.

In addition to bridges, slides, ropes and sliding poles, a play unit can also feature activity boards, mirror panels and finger mazes bringing a sensory element to outdoor play.

Our play boats and sculptures support imaginary play, helping to enhance social and emotional development.

Wellbeing is at the core of our playground designs, which can incorporate storytelling areas, outdoor dining pods, and play dens for mindfulness exercises.

At Hand Made Places we look to support learning as well as encourage children to have fun. Our sandpits and water play tables and gardening and growing range can be incorporated into science and mathematics sessions.

Our chalk boards and dry wipe boards can support literacy, art and design and creative learning. Our outdoor stages and musical instruments help to bring drama and language sessions to life.

At Hand Made Places we are committed to delivering the equipment and apparatus needed for a successful play-based learning environment. Call us today to discuss your project ideas.
