Playground markings are pictures, lines or designs that are used for entertainment, fitness or learning, and can be made from paint or longer-lasting materials like thermoplastic, which we use. Our playground markings come in 18 bright colours so you can create the aesthetic environment you want, whether you want lots of colours or just your school colours. When it comes to playground markings in Warwick, we know how to make your school look good.
Why are playground markings so important for playgrounds?
Many kids love to run around and play games in the playground, and we support that! But we also know that accidents can happen, which is why using playground markings to separate activities is a smart move – especially if some are fast-moving ones or involve equipment that could collide with a child who isn’t involved. You can also mark any off-limits areas and direct the children around the school with playground markings.
Support an active lifestyle
Picking up active habits now is a great way to prevent health complications from obesity later in life. According to the National Child Measurement Programme (2019/2020), 23.3% of Reception children and 37% of Year Six children in Warwickshire are overweight, obese or severely obese, which can be counteracted in many cases with a balanced diet and as little as 2.5 hours of exercise a week. Playground markings, like our Mile a Day, can help to get kids moving in a way they will find enjoyable.
Better mental health
One in ten children will have a clinically-diagnosable mental health issue so it’s important to give them all the support you can. It may not cure everything but giving children regular breaks and somewhere to be active can make a huge difference to their mental wellbeing and concentration. Whether you want to check in with their feelings or let them blow off some steam, we have many options for you.
We would recommend these playground markings
Variety is a great starting point
The age of your playground’s users and the purpose of the playground will make a big difference in what you need, but generally you will want a mix of educational, active, and fun playground markings.
Develop that foundation in jumping with our Long Jump playground marking and see how much progress the children can make. We also offer running tracks that can help with fitness levels. Sports courts can be combined if you don’t have a lot of room and are great for break times, as well as lessons. Add in Snakes and Ladders and you have the beginnings of a wonderful playground.
