“Gayhurst Community School: “Better Than the Local Park”
Schoolscapes worked closely with us at all stages of the playground plans. They listened to what we wanted and were able to suggest new and innovative ways of developing the space into the delightful and stimulating playspace we needed.
Children, staff, parents and governors were all able to contribute and share their ideas and gain a feeling of ownership of the completed project.
The impact on the whole community has been better than we could have expected.
Playtimes are now much calmer and the children engage in imaginative play using the different play structures, musical instruments, science resources and generally enjoying the more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing surfaces.
The children and kitchen staff are enjoying growing vegetables, herbs and edible flowers to enhance our school meals.
At the end of the school day it’s hard to get the parents to take the children home as the school grounds are better than the local park.
