If one thing was clear from the recent survey that asked pupils what they would like to see improved in our playgrounds - our children and young people like swings.
Over the Easter holidays, the existing Whitefields adventure playground, is being renovated, with new equipment commissioned from playground specialists Fawns Ltd.
The new equipment includes:
- three new swing areas, with a mixture of flat seats, bucket seats and a basket swing.
- a specially designed "tunnel mound" with steel slide, rope climber and log stockade
- a specially designed "forest tower" including climbing walls, fireman's pole suspension bridge.
"I am so pleased that we are able to improve the Adventure Playground, which is a favourite space for many of the children and young people at Whitefield" said Laura Pease, Principal of Whitefield Schools, "Fawns worked very well with the school to follow up the clear views expressed by pupils. In recent years we have developed a range of leisure spaces on site, with new and improved play spaces for children in the early years, a refurbished soft play area and exciting updates to the pool and sensory rooms and this latest project will help our children and young people to keep fit and, equally important, to learn to play and relax together"
