Case Study: Parkgate Primary School


The Client

Parkgate Primary School is one of the largest primary schools in the city of Coventry and an academy within The Futures Trust.

Project Scope

Design proposal, supply and installation of a new Foundation Stage outdoor play area.




The Brief

Parkgate Primary School’s Foundation Stage outdoor play area had suffered during the heatwave of 2018, killing off their grassed area and taking it back to just soil.

Morleys were invited to create an outdoor play area that had all year-round use, with play zones connected by an all-weather pathway.

How We Delivered

  • All areas of dead grass removed, and areas zoned with either artificial grass, loose-fill woodchip or shock pad safety surface

  • Locker style storage unit added which housed a modular, free-standing activity trail that can be packed away and the area used for a variety of other things

  • Triple-ply polycarbonate canopy shelter fitted that offers essential UV protection during outdoor learning

  • Old equipment removed and replaced, rotten sandpit removed and replaced with a new large sandpit with sliding lid, metal climbing frame removed and replaced with an Esmerelda Tower

  • Working garden area was created using two planters at children’s working height

  • A gazebo with seating to all sides was built around a tree to make a storytelling and role play area
