Children at Ladbrooke School enjoy learning outside whatever the weather!

Ladbroke JMI School in Hertfordshire's new outdoor play area and canopy

Ladbrooke JMI School in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire provides education for 240 pupils per day and can now offer their reception pupils outdoor learning opportunities all year round.

Karen Friend, the reception teacher at the school for 8 years wanted a durable, low maintenance canopy installed outside her classroom.

Karen explained; “The space we wanted to cover was an obscure shape on a slope, so the product needed to be made to fit.” Able Canopies altered the design of their standard Coniston wall mounted canopy so that it followed the shape of the outside area, therefore offering optimum coverage for the class in all weather conditions.

“Able Canopies came up with a great solution to transform our outdoor area which has allowed us to create a great learning environment. We could not have imagined that this canopy would have had the huge positive impact that it has to our Reception class.” continues Karen.

“It enables the children’s lessons to flow from inside to outside learning opportunities with ease and provides some protection from the sun, rain and snow. Many parents and governors have commented on how nice the canopy is and how much space it has given us access to – all year round.”
