Requirement

QE II approached Setter Play first in 2017 to create a design and provide a quotation to reimagine all four of its main play spaces, with a view to making it more vibrant and accessible to the school's SEN pupils.

Solution

The full project took around 6 weeks, with a large amount of groundwork operation to excavate the soil from all three areas, remove it off site, and then to bring stone in to compact it and provide an even, stable surface, which was especially important for any pupils who may have difficulties with access.

On top of the stone base, Setter Play laid wetpour rubber in natural colours so as to not appear too synthetic. Into this vibrant butterflies and flowers were inlaid to make the area sparkle and provide different focal points. The school also requested a cupcake be inlaid in the design.

The above area had a sensory focus, with interactive music panels, as well as imagination play shops to help pupils improve their social and interpersonal skills. A mound and tunnel stands in the middle of the space and offers the chance to explore a three-dimensional area.

The next, central area is the largest of the three, and has a movement and activity theme to help pupils grow healthy and strong through play. The centrepiece is a flush-floor trampoline, with a fence around it to help control the access and more easily supervise the space.

Complementing the roundabout is a mound that was created for pupils to run and roll over, and help improve their motor skills. The brown wetpour is designed to evoke a molehill for imagination play, and is a different colour to help is stand out.

The space is complete with an adventure trail, which challenges balance, coordination and agility as well as fine- and gross-motor skills. The natural timbers complement the green and brown wetpour rubber, whilst brown bonded rubber mulch can be seen around the trees in the space to help them breathe and absorb water.

The flower and butterfly designs continue into the side spaces too, with recycled plastic multicoloured fencing adding to the exciting colours.

The third space is a quiet reading area, with soft and tactile artificial grass throughout. Planting beds feature in the space and invite QE II’s pupils to get closer to nature by planting sensory flowers for an experience in sights and smells.
