We recently invited Longley School to get a behind the scenes look at Sutcliffe Play including a tour of our factory to see how we make the equipment and of course putting it to the test on the playground outside our offices.
The School Council visited Sutcliffe Play as part of a project to create a physical and sensory development space rather than a play area. Longley school is about to become a facility that caters purely for Autistic children and is working with Sutcliffe Play to design not just an inclusive space but a space that specifically met the needs of the school and its users.
By inviting the School Council to visit Sutcliffe Play it allowed our designers to see how they played on the various items of equipment in our onsite play area and importantly it highlighted what would be suitable. It also gave the children the opportunity to see how play equipment is made and how much development goes in to manufacturing it.
