Adding Stylish New Sports Playground Markings for Robert Shaw Primary School

Robert Shaw sports court and cricket run

Robert Shaw Primary School, situated in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, aimed to enhance their playground to better serve its students’ Physical Education and recreational needs. There’s no better way to do this than by adding in some vibrant and stylish new playground markings. 

The school sought to install a variety of custom sports markings that would maximise the use of their available space and provide students with engaging and structured play areas.

Did This Primary School Project Present Any Challenges?

The main challenge of this project, as with so many that we undertake, was understanding the actual size of the playground space. Once we knew that, we then needed to determine how to utilise it effectively. Ensuring that the space could accommodate the new custom designs without overcrowding or underutilisation was crucial. That’s why we worked with the school closely – just as we do with every school we’re called to help out.

Fitting Playground Markings for Robert Shaw Primary School

We needed to approach this project with careful planning and a focus on customised solutions to meet the school’s specific needs. Here’s how we tackled it:

  • Consultation and Space Assessment: We began with a detailed consultation to understand the school’s requirements and vision for its playground. We conducted a thorough site survey to accurately measure the playground and assess how best to implement the new designs.
  • Custom Design Creation: Based on the measurements and the school’s objectives, we designed a custom 3 x 2 Grid, a bespoke Basketball Court, and a custom Cricket Run. These designs were tailored to fit the available space perfectly while ensuring they provided the maximum benefit to the students.
  • Material Selection: High-quality, durable materials were selected. This meant that the markings would withstand heavy use and various weather conditions, ensuring longevity and safety when in use for years to come.
  • Installation: Our professional installation team executed the plan with precision. By carefully measuring and marking the playground, we ensured that each element was placed accurately and efficiently.

What Were the Results Like?

The newly revitalised playground at Robert Shaw Primary School now features a vibrant and functional space. Here, students can enjoy structured sports and recreational activities. The custom sports markings have not only improved the aesthetic appeal of the playground but also provided the students with dedicated areas for basketball, cricket, and various grid-based games.

What Did the School Think of its New Playground Markings?

Jack Arnold, PE Lead at Robert Shaw Primary, wanted to say this:

“We found the communication from Designs & Lines excellent from the off. They were quick to answer any questions we had and were very professional throughout. We highly recommend. Our playground looks excellent too. Thanks!”
