Setter Play was selected by Stebon Primary School in Poplar, East London to deliver their playground transformation after raising funds for a couple of years.
The key element of the brief was inclusivity, making sure that pupils of all ages and abilities could join in the fun and reach the canopy of the tree.
They also wanted to maximise play and educational value, with a mix of adventure- and imagination-play provisions and a chance to get pupils nearer to the tree and closer to nature.
Having been successful in raising funds they also proceeded with phase 2 concurrently, with a bespoke spin on Setter's Hambridge climbing frame including activities selected by teachers, such as the aerial walkway and the fireman’s pole.
Hambridge is a free-form adventure that is ideal for promoting primary school aged pupils’ mental and physical development through play.
The finishing touches to the project were some line markings, including 2 x 20m activity lines, which included ‘walk the plank’ activities to complement the ship-themed treehouse.
