Making School play areas fun and safe

St Matthews - leeds

September 2018

 

When St Matthews Primary School got in touch with us about their ideas for their outdoor learning and play area we were delighted to help them achieve this with our Yorkshire artificial grass. 

Our surveyor visited the site where he measured up the area and showed them samples of the various grass types we would suggest for a school playground, ensuring they chose the correct one for their needs.

The area looks fantastic and we are pretty sure the pupil's will love it, somewhere they can learn and play with friends

Isha, Year 6

"At Parkinson Lane School the students enjoy playing on the new cushioned Astroturf. It has helped everyone who has gone on it. Before children would always slip on the muddy grass or cut themselves on the hard surfaces. It has helped children as well as adults to play safely because of its softer surface. Thank you for putting in the Astroturf. My school is very pleased."

Zeeshan, Year 6

"At Parkinson Lane School the Astroturf has brought along a lot of changes. With the real grass children would fall and get muddy, then they would get their clothes dirty. However now with the artificial grass, if they fall they do not get muddy at all. Another change is that the Astroturf has made the number of injuries less, so if a child falls he/she doesn’t fall straight to face solid concrete, but instead they hit a slightly cushioned surface. Also it is more anti slip than real grass. Thank you."

"The Astroturf makes the playground a safer place to play. When the old tarmac was in the playground it was more dangerous and everyone has benefited from this."

Isha, Year 5

"The Astroturf in our playgrounds has benefited everyone without a doubt. Everyone in the school are very pleased with it. Some of the main reasons include that our school does a lot of sports and we are still able to do them in the rain, as it doesn’t get as slippery and muddy as grass. Another reason is that when children fall over, they are not injured as much as they would have been on a hard surface, as Astroturf is a much safer material. Thank you for putting the Astroturf in our school."

Mr Gugsy Ahmed, Parkinson Lane School

"John, just wanted you to know how impressed I am with the work you have done at school. Artificial grass is a fantastic company run by fantastic individuals employing fantastic fitters.

The work you have done at Parkinson Lane School has transformed beyond all recognition our play areas. It has allowed children to practice sports of many different kinds that they may not have been able to do on the tarmac.

The flexibility the pitches allow are influencing positively the teaching of our children whether as individuals, classes or groups. Ultimately this has led to our children winning major school titles in football, cricket and athletics."
