Special Educational Needs

We believe that every child should have equal access to the best play opportunities. Our inclusive playground equipment allows children with disabilities and special needs to be active side-by-side with able bodied children.

Our products have been designed and developed with the child, their disabilities, and stimulation of senses, manual dexterity, challenges, and their enjoyment in mind.


Designing Your Special Needs Playground

When planning and designing a children’s play area there are a number of considerations to ensure maximum play value.

Sutcliffe Schools can offer a free bespoke play area design service to create the best individual early years play area for your site or provide a single piece of play equipment that will provide quality play for many years to come.

We would be happy to help and discuss any requirements you may have, call us on +44 (0)1977 653263 or email info@sutcliffeschools.co.uk


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.
