Do you want to improve physical activity in the playground?

Childhood inactivity is on the rise. As screen time increasingly replaces time spent outdoors, many children’s only exposure to physical activity is at school. Sadly, many children, especially girls, avoid team sports and competitive games and miss out on a variety of experiences and challenges.

With the schools shut, now is the ideal time to plan for September.

How can Playcrete help your school?

Playcrete is passionate about increasing physical activity in school playgrounds through fun, non-organised spaces, designed with every child in mind.  

Our ideas range from the increasingly popular “Daily Mile”, to less traditional solutions such as table tennis tables, scooter pump tracks, climbing boulders, traversing walls and parkour;  each of them encourage children to have fun whilst they explore creative ways to use these spaces. Whether at break times, as part of PE Lessons or in after school clubs, our designs require little specialist staff training and no need for a PE kit – just get stuck in!

Why Playcrete?

We have over 40 years’ experience in the design and construction of leisure facilities in the UK. We have worked with local authorities from Cornwall to Aberdeen. Our team includes play designers, skateboarders, BMX riders, engineers, athletes and parents. We believe our internal diversity helps us to create inclusive designs. We have first-hand experience of autism and ADHD and understand the challenges of SEND.

We manufacture ourselves, here in the UK. Most of our products are designed and constructed in concrete. They offer excellent value for money, are vandal resistant and low maintenance - no moving parts to continually repair! You can also be confident of your investment with our guarantees of up to 20-years.

How to get started

We would be delighted to help you explore your ideas for improving the facilities in your playground. We can also send you a complimentary activity review. This is designed to highlight your basic requirements and identify the aspirations of your pupils. It takes just a few minutes and gives us all the basic information we need to start designing.  

Every school has their own requirements and our knowledgeable and experienced team are ready to discuss your specific project. Whether it’s a single table tennis table or a complete playground masterplan, we can manage your project.
