Snug Physical Litercy | Sutcliffe Schools Play Equipment

Physical Literacy

Sutcliffe Schools aims to support every school and young person to achieve their full potential when using our physical literacy play and sports equipment.

Our products can be applied in a wide variety of outdoor school settings. They have been designed to support children’s fundamental movement skills and our commitment embodies the concept of physical literacy. Enabling children to be physically literate supports their development for the future.

Snug is an innovative product for early years and primary school that, with the addition of The Physical Literacy Resource kit, stimulates natural exercise and embodies fundamental movement skills.

Snug encourages social interaction, co-operation and inspires creativity. Requiring no installation, and being weather proof and durable, it should provide endless play opportunities for many years to come.

Using Snug allows children to experience and explore a large number of fundamental movement skills, with the adaptability of loose parts allowing each year group to focus specifically on teaching and assessing a small number of physical literacy skills, from foundation to key stage 2.


Playground Funding

Tight budgets increasingly means that schools rely on innovative fundraising efforts to purchase equipment. Knowing where to look is always a good start and, as there are so many possible funding organisations, visit our Funding page for further information on organisations you may find useful.


Case Studies

Scout Road Academy

The school recently took part in a training day with Sutcliffe Play’s new Sutcliffe Schools division, during which staff were shown new ways to use SNUG in Physical Literacy.  See in action…

Keys Meadow Primary School

The major problem facing Lawrence Price, Head Teacher of Keys Meadows Primary School, in Enfield, is that the nine-piece kit has, if anything, proved a little too popular with the 300 youngsters.

Fitzjohns Primary School

Head Teacher Rob Earrey comments: “Snug is creative, imaginative, intriguing, enticing, but most importantly fun. I love it and so do the children.”
