Special Education Needs School Playground Equipment

Bringing all abilities together with our Special Needs Playground Equipment

Discover how inclusive sen playground equipment and designs are enabling children with wide-ranging abilities to play together and learn through a shared medium which they all understand - play.

Outdoor play is not only vital for children with special needs to develop their health, but it also offers opportunities for positive learning environments and increased social inclusion. Our adapted SEN school playground equipment offers a safe environment for stimulating the senses, encouraging imaginative play and prolonged concentration while providing an inclusive space for group play with other children.

Why is special needs outdoor play equipment important?

Allowing children to move and explore with their bodies in a natural way is important for physical and cognitive development. Being outside helps to stimulate their senses and plays on their sensory devices to explore. Inclusive outdoor play equipment is important for children with special needs as it improves coordination, mobility, balance, and propriocrption.It's simple to understand why play is important for special needs children - because it makes them feel the same as any other child.

It’s important to us that our Special Education Needs school playground equipment and primary school playground equipment considers children of all abilities, helping every child to feel valued and included during play.

At KOMPAN, we work closely with schools, education centres and parents to build dedicated areas for safe, accessible and interactive play. Our Special needs outdoor playground equipment is designed to develop motor learning, stimulate children's senses and encourage socialisation.

There are many benefits of playgrounds in schools. Happy, healthy children lie at the core of our company values and our team endeavour to ensure that opportunities for social, stimulating and learning play are given to all, no matter their age or ability. Our goal is to ensure that no child is left behind on a KOMPAN playground.
