Kingston Park Primary School 

The brief

When our Head Design Consultant visited the school and met the Headteacher it was to discuss developing the early years area. However upon visiting the main playground it was decided that this was in need of more immediate work! Some shelter was needed to provide cover for the pupils and an inspirational role play area was discussed. The school also had a trim trail which wasn't used all year around as it was on the school field, could Red Monkey find a solution to this?

The result

Red Monkey got to work on creating a fantastic playground, packed with stimulating and challenging equipment for the school's pupils. The outdoor area now has 3 distinct areas including Red Monkey Equipment. An amazing bespoke stage allows children to act, dance and present to their classmates. An enchanting amphitheatre provides shelter for outdoor learning and break times all year. Whilst the trim trail has been extended with 5 of our bestselling pieces of equipment to complete a circle of fabulous agility pieces. Across all the installations we have used synthetic surfacing so the equipment can be used all year round.

Feedback

''The new products from Red Monkey have had a fantastic impact on the pupils at the school. Every opportunity children have to be outdoors they immediately head to the new equipment. Older children have become more tolerant and interactive with the younger pupils as they all play on the trim trail.’’
