Requirement

AMV Playgrounds was invited to Chuter Ede Primary School by Julie Ford, a member of the school admin team, to discuss the school's need to replace an existing trim trail.

The school currently had a wooden trim trail for KS2 which had been condemned on safety grounds and needed replacing with longer-lasting metal equipment.

AMV was asked to design a challenging trim trail / fitness trail that would prove stimulating and challenging to KS2 children during playtime and lunch.

The equipment was clearly needed as soon as possible as KS2 children were currently having to make do with using a trim trail elsewhere in the school which was meant for KS1. (This was actually an installation of AMV products from years before and was still going strong.)

As there was already a trim trail on site for younger children, it was essential that the new solution provided by AMV have a series of completely different and more advanced challenges.

Solution

A detailed proposal was presented which included a full 'to scale' layout of the area, following industry health and safety guidelines for play equipment.

The AMV design team created a trim trail run that made best use of the available space within the school. Particular attention was paid to ensuring that the items installed were sufficiently challenging to satisfy the play needs of the KS2 children.

Items chosen included:

  • Zig-Zag balancing beam
  • Trapeze monkey bars
  • Rocky traverse wall
  • Swinging traverse unit
  • 6 x balancing posts
  • Up and Over scramble net
  • Climbing wall

Outcome

Whilst completing a customer feedback form once the works were complete, the school scored both the standard of work carried out by the AMV install team and the professional conduct of the install team as “excellent”.
