Context

A primary school in North Lincolnshire has transformed their outdoor grass playing field into a dynamic sports track that can be enjoyed all year round, with help from Sovereign Play. Wrawby St Mary’s CE Primary School wanted to upgrade their grass playing field into a space that could be used and enjoyed all year round, whilst improving the general fitness of the pupils.

Work undertaken

Sovereign Play proposed a bonded rubber mulch track split into equal sections of a different colour, to allow the pupils to keep track of how far they have run. In addition to this, a heavy duty section was included to allow for lawn mowers and tractors to cross the path, without damaging the surfacing. The plans were presented within a comprehensive quotation pack for the school.

The Sovereign team completed the works efficiently and in a timely manner. The grass field was transformed from a seasonal play area to a space that can be enjoyed throughout the year, during all weathers. The track is being used to encourage activity from the pupils, improve their health and general wellbeing whilst also being incorporated into P.E. lessons

Comment

“The communication with the team that installed the track was excellent, they kept me informed at all stages of the installation. Their attention to detail and the aesthetics of the track and school environment was excellent. The children think the track is brilliant and they were on it as soon as they were able to be. It has allowed all children to be active at different points during the day, they can walk, run, skip etc along the track and because it is divided into four colours, they know how far they have travelled. The track now means that the space can be used in all weathers offering more opportunities to the children. It is also being incorporated into outdoor PE lessons throughout the year which means it is multi use.”
