The Benefits of our Canopies for Schools
School playground canopies and outdoor covered shelters are ideal for any school or nursery where an all-year-round outside recreational space is needed. Here are some great benefits of our versatile school canopies to encourage outdoor play, learning and development.
Protection from rain and UV rays
Nurseries and pre-schools will benefit from a covered learning environment that can be used all-year round. Our canopies block harmful UV rays – and provide a fun area for children to sit and safely enjoy lessons or storytime in the summer. Even when the weather is not so kind, the polycarbonate roof of our shelters keeps pupils dry while they learn.
Messy play without the mess indoors
Keep messy play outside with a covered learning environment where children can indulge their imagination. Think mud kitchens, vegetable patches and creative areas designed for water-play and painting!
Keep parents happy too!
Picking up your children from school in the rain is not much fun! Provide parents with a welcome respite from the drizzle under a covered area while they wait in the playground and they are sure to be appreciative.
Additional storage space
Class sizes are increasing, and with less space inside a traditional classroom finding storage areas can soon become challenging. We can include a range of storage options in our wall-mounted school playground shelters, giving teachers more areas to store PE apparatus, wellington boots for messy play and outdoor equipment
Breakout areas for secondary school pupils
Older children can also benefit from a covered shelter as a social meeting place to gather outdoors at break times or as a quiet area to work outside independently or in groups.
Additional dining space
With space at a premium, a covered outdoor area can also be used as a dining hall. We can include seating and storage too – so children can eat in comfort and have a place to store their lunchboxes during school time.
