Why You Should Consider Outdoor Gym Equipment for Your Pupils.
Our outdoor gym equipment will give your pupils a fun space to enjoy outside of the classroom, whilst also providing a great way of using your PE and Sport Premium Funding. Prioritising physical education in your school is essential for the well-being and development of your students.
So why is outdoor gym equipment for schools so important? Not only are pupils encouraged to orientate their activities to help improve their health, but the school’s use of the funding will also raise standards of learning and achievements in sports, which helps the long-lasting legacy in your school of improving children’s health routine.

Red Monkey’s Goal
We see that physical activity and the development of students’ intelligence is strongly linked. We take this idea into all of our playground design projects. Our outdoor equipment range, from climbing frames to trim trails, encourages physical activity and development.
All of our children’s outdoor play equipment is aimed at furthering students learning. We have a range of equipment aimed at developing the senses, or areas where they are free to roleplay and develop social skills. This development occurs outside of traditional classroom settings, as we believe that learning never stops. Encouraging a number of different ways to learn will benefit students greatly.
While we have these more traditional climbing frames, trim trails and other outdoor play equipment, we wanted to be able to add things that are outside the standard playground. To complement our more traditional structures we have started to produce specific gym equipment ranged from strength outdoor fitness equipment to cardiovascular playground equipment.
What Outdoor Gym Equipment Does For Your Students
The main aim of installing our outdoor gym equipment is to o help increase the fitness levels of your students. There is a difference between our outdoor playground equipment and our specialised outdoor gym equipment. While our outdoor play equipment will help develop students through physical activity, it doesn’t necessarily increase fitness levels to the same extent that the gym equipment does. These pieces of equipment (such as climbing frames) encourage learning and cognitive development over fitness. They do this through sensory experiences and opportunities to role play in the spaces.
Our specialised range of outdoor gym equipment is specifically designed to improve fitness levels. These give a lot of diversity to your PE lessons. They are especially useful for primary school students who have a lot of energy and are at a vital stage of developing their coordination. Our outdoor gym equipment for schools allows them to channel this in fun and exciting ways.
We ensure that students can explore these spaces safely. When installing equipment, we carry out intensive safety checks and make sure that there is safety surfacing around the equipment in case of a fall. This allows you to confidently let students explore the space themselves, without the need for constant supervision, giving them ample chance for discovery during play.
