Safe Outdoor Resources - Supporting Social Distancing at School!

Safe Outdoor Products for Schools

Teachers have an extra task on their hands now. Social distancing in the classroom and outdoors is proving to be quite a challenge. 

Don’t worry, we’ve come up with a solution!

Newby Leisure, specialists in playground design and outdoor educational resources, have designed a variety of low budget products that aid social distancing. Below is our chosen range of safe products for school that help keep children safe and sound whilst stimulating learning. Our products will help teachers prepare their classrooms and outdoor areas for a full return in September. 

Our Low budget range is great for independent learning during the COVID pandemic. These outdoor resources have been designed to encourage children to social distance whilst they work individually or in small teams.
