We had a wonderful time at the Learning Places Scotland 2022 event

Learning Places Scotland is the annual gathering of the education community in partnership with the Scottish Government.

With a focus on the funding, design, build, maintenance and management of early years, schools, colleges and universities, the event features a 2-day multi-stream conference, an exhibition showcasing some of the most innovative solutions around and a glittering awards dinner celebrating excellence in the sector.

We have worked with many schools and construction companies in the past and have a wide range of experience and expertise of outdoor play provision for all ages from nursery to further education.

Our products include seating and recreational spaces as well as educational and sensory learning outdoor spaces. For more information about the show, visit the Learning Places Scotland Website.

Creative ideas for outdoor sensory play

We enjoy collaborating with teachers and other child care professionals to create new sensory wall panels that are guaranteed to attract young inquisitive minds, and allow for self-guided exploratory experimentation.

Having fun with colour and light

Colourful perspex panels are perfect for sensory gardens and outdoor play areas. The colours will change as the light shining through them changes at different times of the day.

The panels can be put into existing gazebos to create a sensory tunnel or can be installed as individual units around the play area for children and people of all ages to interact with, look through, and enjoy.

Developing outdoor spaces with planters and seating

Bring a redundant corner of the playground to life by adding a few planters and seating. Constructed from slow grown European Pine that is pressure treated with wax, these units can be made in any configuration or size to suit the space available.

The new space can be part of outdoor learning as a teaching space and the pupils can enjoy growing plants and flowers and watching them change over time.

Celebrations at the Scottish Education Awards 2022

The Scottish Education Awards celebrate the hard work and success which takes place in Scottish education.

The annual event recognises those who dedicate their lives to children and young people and showcases the valuable work and innovation in Scottish classrooms.

The Scottish Education Awards were first launched in November 2001 by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Daily Record, with the specific aims of celebrating the successes and recognising the achievements taking place within Scottish education.

Proud to be involved

This year we sponsored the Make A Difference (Primary) Award.

This award is for a primary school, or other establishment, (e.g. special school or all-through school), that can demonstrate its effectiveness in transforming the life chances of the children and young people which it serves. For more information click here.

Innovative solutions for outdoor fitness.

We recently installed a large selection of agility items for a local school and it included one product we had not previous built before.

It was the Abs Station – a unique outdoor agilty trail item that is suitable for all ages and adults too.

It can be used in a variety of ways and will help to develop excellent abs while having fun.

Examples of this are the Car, Plane, and the Imaginative Play Zone.
