Following extensive building work on their school site Cherry Oak needed to enhance their two outside spaces to maximise the facilities for their students.
From seven companies who were invited to tender for the work KOMPAN were chosen. Our offering was also the preferred option of the students which was very pleasing to know as they were clearly impressed by the play value on offer. The first phase of a two phase scheme was carried out over the school Summer holiday.
Date of Installation: August 2017
Age Group: KS1 (Key Stage 1), KS2 (Key Stage 2)
Product Range: Simply Play and PCM Moments
Project Value: KS2 area £14,000 and KS1 area £5,250 approx (excluding installation, surfacing and fencing).
The larger Key Stage Two area now has a number of products from our Simply Play range complete with wet pour surfacing and picket fence. The Double Tower with net bridge, spicas, nest swing and multi seesaw all allow the children to engage their proprioceptive and vestibula senses through hanging, pulling, climbing, swinging, sliding, spinning, rocking and pushing. This allows the children to play more independently and make decisions thus bringing educational benefits to the zone.
The smaller Key Stage One Area also has a nest swing and smaller spica to support sensory processing. The climbing frame used is from our PCM Moments range as a more appropriate climbing structure for the age range.
"Kompan , were very professional from start to finish, we had some playground equipment installed in the summer holidays and everybody at the school is delighted with the job that was done, the guys that done the work were a credit to Kompan, always keeping me informed about how the job was progressing, as I was looking after two separate school sites, many thanks from all at our school."
