Scottish Education Awards 2019 news banner image SEA launch 2019

Scottish Education Awards 2019  – now open for nominations!

 

We value the effort many school and nursery teachers make to get the children and young adults outside as part of the everyday commitment. We therefore have been proud to sponsor the Scottish Education Awards and have done so for a number of years. The Scottish Education Awards celebrate the hard work and success which takes place in Scottish education, and those who dedicate their lives to children and young people and showcase the valuable work and innovation in Scottish classrooms are recognised at the annual event.

We sponsor the Learning for Sustainability Award. There are fourteen other categories to choose from. Enter by following this link.

This award recognises the achievements of educational settings who have made connections between all of the different aspects of learning for sustainability to support the development of a coherent whole educational setting approach.

The Scottish Education Awards were first launched in November 2001 by the Scottish Government and the Scottish Daily Record, with the specific aims of celebrating the successes and recognising the achievements taking place within Scottish education.

Our Range

Our range of wooden play equipment for schools enhances the outdoor play provision and also offers excellent opportunities to encourage outdoor learning. As a company that originated by building domestic play equipment, we are constantly expanding our range of products in new and innovative ways.

We have supplied play equipment to over 1000 educational establishments making us one of the leading timber outdoor play equipment specialists in Scotland.

We have a thorough understanding of the procedures required to install play equipment for this sector and work alongside the various organisations to make it all happen smoothly.

We recognise the importance of encouraging physical activity in children of all ages at various points throughout the school day. This can be in addition to walking or cycling to and from school. Learning in, through and about physical activity is enhanced by providing in a wide range of items of outdoor play equipment which can be used for outdoor pursuits at break times, lunchtimes, and outwith the school day.

Established patterns of daily outdoor physical activity at an early age are likely to lead to an enthusiasm for sustained physical activity in adult life.
