Chapel Road SEN School
Play is at the heart of the design strategy for this school for special educational needs, which was developed in consultation with teachers and pupils.
Design proposals incorporate outdoor classrooms, ‘run around’ and play garden spaces, a kitchen garden, hardstanding for bike riding, a multi-use games area and formal sports pitches. There is also an amphitheatre space for outdoor dining, play and assemblies, extensive natural meadows, wetlands and woodlands and a dynamic play hill with ramps, a land bridge, slides, climbing slopes and play structures.
Every inch of the space is designed for children and with opportunities for educational play, practical experience, safety and security in mind.
