Timotay Playscapes are working in partnership with Halstead Primary School to develop their outdoor playground facilities. Halstead Primary School are a setting situated in Kent and are set to join The Pioneer Academy in February 2022.
The Pioneer Academy has significantly improved many of the school’s outdoor playground facilities within their trust, and Halstead Primary School will have full access to the significant investment too.
The trust believes that being outdoors is hugely important during Early Years learning and wants to ensure that the generous outside space and grounds at Halstead are utilised for their full benefit.
The Pioneer Academy want to ensure that all children have access to the facilities that they deserve and fully support that outdoor learning is essential to children, particularly in the EYFS curriculum. The investment will support the children’s development.
Halstead Primary School & Timotay Work Together To Create Incredible Outdoor Space
The latest investment at Halstead Primary showcases the commitment of the trust to outdoor learning, and will ensure that the children in this setting have access to play and learn creatively – and whatever the weather.
The redevelopment of the outdoor facilities and playground will provide pupils at the school with an exceptional, all-weather, learning space which will include a hideaway den, role play areas, plants and climbing equipment.
Lee Mason Ellis, CEO of The Pioneer Academy said: “I am delighted to be able to announce the planned redevelopment of the EYFS outdoor learning environment at Halstead Community Primary School. I know our youngest pupils benefit enormously from an enhanced outdoor learning and play area”
Mr Hawkins, headteacher at Halstead Community Primary School said: “Everyone at Halstead is excited about the plans for the new EYFS area. It will be great to upgrade some of our older facilities.”
