Schools across Lancashire are improving their outdoor play areas by taking advantage of the recent increase in government funding

Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium which has doubled this year.

Schools with more than 17 pupils now receive £16k plus an additional £10 per pupil.

A key player in this market is ESP Play.

Based in Burnley and with a nationwide reach, ESP has design and installed over 3,000 play areas since being formed 15 years ago.

The company has worked with over 30 schools across Lancashire implementing their ‘Multi-Skills Zones’ which come as a package with training and is proven to make the intervention sustainable.

The extra funding has been, in part, raised by the so called ‘Sugar Tax’ and must also have an impact on the Child Obesity strategy.

One schools to benefit recently is Wellfield School in Burnley, Lancashire.

Helen Tyson – School Games Organiser for Burnley School Sports Partnership commented “The Multi-Skills Zones offer children at all key stages the opportunity to practice, progress and perfect their fundamental movement skills which are transferable into all areas of learning”
