School children across the country have taken to our KOMPAN school playgrounds, attracted by the secluded areas designed for social gatherings and lead by their curiosity to explore different levels of our play structures, exercising both their bodies and minds. Our playground equipment doesn’t just offer an environment for physical exertion but encourages children to attend school to make use of the equipment available.
An Attractive School Environment
Children learn better in environments that appeal to them. Beyond the play area, our KOMPAN outdoor playground equipment for schools can contribute to lesson plans with National Curriculum guided teaching materials to bring learning onto the playground. In addition to creating an attractive school appearance to prospective parents and students and increasing school ratings overall.
Raising Pupil Attainment
Student and children’s health and safety lie at the forefront of our projects installing outdoor play equipment for schools and our designs incorporate safe playground flooring as standard. The safer environment encourages children to step out of their comfort zone, challenging themselves with physical activities that they may not have tried before. This independent exploration is vital to building a child’s self-confidence and promotes a sense of achievement when they succeed at something new.
There have been plenty of studies done on the effect that school outdoor equipment has on students and almost all of them have indicated a much better rate of student achievement where a school has an exciting, innovative playground for the kids to exert themselves on.
Improving Student Attention
As an experienced school playground equipment supplier, we understand that opportunities for play and physical activity have a direct impact on student’s in classroom behaviour and their attention span during class. That’s why we design our playgrounds with specific age groups in mind, so students can get the best out of their freedom to play and successfully achieve across all child development areas.
Our school playgrounds offer value for money
A key strength that has helped KOMPAN acquire and maintain its market-leader position, concerns the work of the KOMPAN Play Institute. Comprising of dedicated and passionate employees, who share knowledge and best-practice, monitor the latest trends and conduct in-depth studies with researchers and scientists from a range of disciplines – Health, Learning, Social Inclusion and Child Development.
At KOMPAN, we don’t just install playgrounds. Our teams work alongside schools to develop a unique and innovating area of play from the ground up. Every area offers a different purpose or activity to challenge children physically or mentally and is designed around schools and their student’s needs.
The World Health Organisation recommends that children above the age of 5 years train their motor skills and strength, so our age-appropriate school playground equipment offers varied opportunities for physical activity to motivate children to be active in a fun way.
On top of that, we plan our play areas to support social interaction, with teachers reporting that social skills such as waiting your turn are hard to teach but easy to understand when in an outdoor play environment. A School playground meticulously planned to support free, guided and instructed play can offer all children a varied and motivating learning experience. The end result of this focused activity is innovative, inspiring and distinctive school play equipment solutions.
