Corsham Primary School in Wiltshire Expands Their Covered Outdoor Area to Enable More Outdoor Play and Learning
Corsham Primary school in Corsham, Wiltshire were having various works completed at their school which was managed by Rigg Construction. Part of the works included removing an existing canopy which was in need of replacing.
The existing canopy was outdated and due to its size, did not provide sufficient shade and shelter for the number of children required. As this area was outside the reception classroom, it was important to the school that they provided an outdoor play and learning area which was large enough for the children to move about freely, any time of the year, due to comprehensive weather protection.
They also wanted to transform the whole outside area to be more much colourful, modern and useable.
The canopy chosen was a free-standing Tarnhow timber canopy with a polycarbonate roof and multi-coloured post pads to brighten the area. The contractor also completed a range of other renovations to update the area including soft play and fencing to enclose the area and keep the children within the designated area.
Both the school and the contractor were pleased with the finished canopy and the transformation of the outdoor space. The children can now play outside all year round whilst keeping protected from the sun and rain, reaping the benefits of outdoor play no matter what the weather.
“All the guys worked in a safe and professional manner and kept the site clean and tidy at all times.”
