Bawburgh Primary School, Norfolk

Norse facilities management Company offers services to schools ranging from cleaning to security, and grounds maintenance to play areas – Fenland Leisure has worked together with the advisory service company now for 2010 years on countless projects in schools right across Norfolk.

The Bawburgh School on the outskirts of Norwich is another such example, and we first visited the school just before Easter 2016. Mrs Jan Staff, Head Teacher at the school was looking to improve the playground facilities of the school for all the age groups. Mrs Staff told us that …“the School field has got some old trim trail which the children really like to use, but there is nothing challenging for the older ones, and nothing at all outside the early years classrooms.”

After an in-depth design consultation and planning process, the £27,000 scheme includes a new sandpit and cover, several Multi-coloured Picnic Tables, Rubber Mushroom Seating, a Traverse Wall, as well as a large bespoke multiplay unit for the older children, and a small pick-up sticks style Explorer Space climbing unit for the younger children.

To ensure that we fitted the brief the design team at FLP created a brand new & bespoke climbing unit to suit the needs of the school – The ‘Wight unit’ from our Festival range features a 2m high lookout platform with Fireman’s Pole, Climbing Net, Vertical Climbing Wall and Monkey Bars that connect to a lower level transition platform.

“It’s fantastic” says Jan “the unit is really eye catching and the children rush towards it as they come out onto the school field”…“The climbing unit for the early years is great too, it really challenges the younger ones and prepares them for moving up to the main play area on the field”
