Custom Playground Markings Fit For Any Outdoor Space

Playground Markings that Maximise Outdoor Learning Potential

Outdoor spaces should offer your school opportunities for both learning and recreation. But this can be a challenge if your site is limited in its available room. That’s why we’re here to offer practical playground marking solutions that help to maximise your outdoor space’s potential – no matter how much of it you have.

The aim of our services, and our wide range of thermoplastic playground markings, is simple: to help you create dynamic, engaging, and adaptable spaces where your students can learn, play games, and flourish in every way. Between our professional site surveys and our expert ability to create custom markings, we can make sure this happens for any size site.

Contact us to get started as soon as possible, or see our selection to start imagining what they’ll look like in your school’s outside space.

The Challenges of Limited Space

Students from Years 7 to 11, or beyond, all require options and opportunities for physical activity. This is especially true when considering PE, as the lesson is compulsory under the National Curriculum. But beyond this, students also need outside spaces where they can socialise, relax, and unwind with activities not correlated to the classroom.

Having a smaller, more constrained outdoor space can feel like a barrier to creating vibrant, multifunctional environments where students can do all of this. Smaller outside spaces mean fewer opportunities for exercise, games, or socialisation activities. It leaves less room for outdoor lessons in the summer and kids stay inside.

This is where we can step in and help with a tried and tested solution, and a process that has worked for over 10,000 schools across the UK so far.

Creating More With Less

Our approach is founded on the idea that even limited outdoor areas hold a lot of potential. It all starts with you getting in contact with us and making that initial enquiry. Then, we will arrange a careful, expertly performed site survey that helps us to measure up your playground and determine how much space you have available. We’ll also take photos and drone footage at this time, giving us the best possible foundation for beginning our work.

Making the Most of Their Space: Our Case Studies

Our playground markings not only facilitate learning but also inject a sense of excitement and fun into the daily school experience. But we would never expect you to just take our word for it. 

Explore how we’ve helped other secondary schools, as well as primary schools, nurseries, and children’s organisations, harness the potential of playground markings in their outdoor spaces. They’ve all enhanced their outdoor areas, boosted student engagement, and improved their overall learning and relaxation environments, even though they’ve all got different dimensions to work with.

Looking for Tailored Solutions?

We understand that every secondary school is unique, each with its own set of challenges and opportunities. That’s why we take a collaborative approach to our work. We don’t just provide standard solutions; we tailor them to fit your specific needs.

Our team of experts will work closely with you to understand your space constraints, your educational objectives, and your vision for the outdoor area in question. Whether you have limited space or a vast playground, we have the expertise to make the most of it.

But it doesn’t stop there. We also offer you the creative freedom to customise playground markings that resonate with your school’s identity and curriculum.
