Overview

Through consultation and careful planning, Sovereign created designs and plans to completely redevelop the outdoor space at Balsall Common Primary School.

Project

Balsall Common Primary School considers physical education to be a fundamental part of a well-rounded curriculum and outdoor play is actively encouraged. The school was keen to provide its nursery children with an outdoor environment that would effectively be an extension of the indoor classroom, to enable children to explore and develop their physical, mental and social capabilities.

Challenge

The nursery's outdoor learning environment required a complete transformation as its play area was bland and uninspiring and could not be used during poor weather. The school received funding for the upgrade from the PTA and John Shepherd Select – a leading Midlands residential property specialist.

Sovereign approached the school to establish whether they would like any specialist work undertaken and was subsequently commissioned to transform the nursery garden.

Outcome

  • Additional and varied sensory equipment provides stimulation for the children.
  • Planters provide the opportunity for inclusive outdoor nature lessons.
  • New features are encouraging children to exercise their imaginations more during play.
  • The area is providing plenty of scope for physical play.
  • Benched seating has created the opportunity for further social interaction.
  • The garden can now be used for most of the school year.
