Walmer pupils will move undercover thanks to new canopy installation

With 390 pupils, 14 classes and almost 60 staff, the Downs Church of England Primary School in Walmer, Kent has rather a lot of people to take care of.

An important part of everyday school life is moving classes around a school site, quickly, safely and efficiently. Having access from outside a school building can help with this but as we all know this country’s inclement weather can often disrupt even the simplest of plans but thanks to a new purpose-built canopy system from schools specialist Able Canopies.

This primary school will soon have its pathway cover extended providing all who use the school with even greater protection and ease of movement around the building.

Mr Ford, the school’s Site Manager, is looking forward to seeing the development of the project which is due to start in March.

“One of the reasons we selected Able to provide external cover is because of the excellent quality of the product. The canopies are attached to the outside of the school building and are reassuringly solid with extra thick roofing materials and lead flashing.”

“Not only do our pupils and staff benefit but our waiting parents, at the end of the school day, also appreciate having shelter against extreme weather,” explains Mr Ford.

The Downs School Head, Mrs Karunaratna, is looking to use money from the school budget to fund the four new installations that will soon be part of the impressive site for the primary school. All involved with the project are looking to Able to provide the perfect combination of top notch practicality, quality and aesthetics that will be a match and a clear asset for this busy and successful school community.

Able Canopies provide a highly professional service for any educational establishment working closely with each school or place of learning to ensure all needs are met before, during and after the placement of the canopies. Those attending work on the school site are CRB checked, providing even greater peace of mind for Head Teachers and their staff.
