Teachers looking to tackle the Sugar Tax and Sports Premium are getting support from outdoor activities specialists Creative Play. The Chester-based organisation is working with schools throughout the UK to encourage outdoor play and exercise through the installation of high-quality playground equipment.

Since the education secretary revealed a £415 million 'Healthy Pupils Capital Programme' for schools to invest in promoting healthier lifestyles, the Creative Play team have been working with schools to get pupils outdoors. The company has been innovating schools’ outdoor areas since 1991, now boasting over 100 specialists operating throughout the UK.

The Healthy Pupils Capital Programme will see schools gain funds from the soft drinks industry levy to help pupils benefit from healthier and more active lifestyles. Such funding extends to Creative Play’s vast range of outdoor play facilities. Pupil fitness is boosted through the likes of their:

  • Climbing frames.
  • Areas for games such as netball, basketball and cricket.
  • Target panels.
  • Pull up / chin up / hurdle fitness stations.
  • Adventure trails.
  • Exercise machines such as pedal bikes and treadmills.

Creative Play’s selection of wares offer many options for disabled and SEN pupils, and even cover mental wellbeing activities such as tai chi and roleplaying (what kids wouldn’t make use of their very own pirate shipwreck?). On top of these options are the company’s renowned shelters and stage structures.

Taking a hands-on, personalised approach, the Creative Play are keen to meet with each school’s staff to give a full consultation, exploring the school’s specific needs. Their ongoing relationships can be explored via the website’s Our Projects Near You page (such as Langley Primary School’s superbly fetching reception and nursery areas).
