The Climbing Trail is what we call our complex of play equipment. Our school council helped to choose the pieces of equipment which have been developed over time. The climbing logs and cargo nets were added during a major refurbishment in the summer 2023. This provides children of all ages with challenge so they can exert energy and creativity whilst climbing. All children are free to use the equipment during playtimes whenever they choose to, there are no set times or rota for use. The variety of ropes, bars, cargo nets, beams and posts mean everyone can find areas they enjoy.
This area offers all children good physical challenge during their play and our older children enjoy helping the younger ones to use it. It also raises the youngest's sense of aspiration, for example the monkey bars are too high for the youngest to reach but there comes a time when they manage to do it for the first time and a great sense of pride accompanies this.
The climbing equipment is surrounded by a soft impact surface and artificial-grass which means the area is used in all weathers throughout the year.
