The challenges – to safeguard pupils and expand dining capacity

Creating a safe, secure school campus often demands a range of measures to meet the standards required for todays educational environments.

St Andrew’s CofE Primary School, Cobham, was created on the site of a secondary school and staff and pupils were concerned just how open the area was to the public.

The layout of buildings even required pupils to walk outside the front of the school to access another part of the campus.

The solution – a TRITON canopy to provide cover within the courtyard area and glazed TRITON enclosed canopy to create an internal walkway securing the school boundary

To help tackle the issues Streetspace was brought in to create a covered walkway to enclose the path pupils travelled at the front of the school. In addition, the school added perimeter fencing and had a new door fob entry system.

To further improve the campus a covered canopy was installed in a courtyard area to expand the amount of space available at lunchtime. The school dining hall had too little capacity and created a noisy atmosphere that the school found difficult to manage

The results – the transformation of an under-used courtyard and a strengthened approach to safeguarding on campus

Jo Mitchell, Co-Head Teacher, said: “The Streetspace covered walkway runs alongside the dining room and means the whole front of the school is enclosed. It ensures children having lessons in the hall are not disturbed and therefore visitors can only access the school through reception.

“Before Streetspace put in the covered canopy the dining room was quite overcrowded, and the noise levels were higher than we wanted and it made it difficult to manage. Now we have practically doubled our dining space and that has really helped the children choose where they want to go and eat. It’s helped with the noise levels and made the dining experience much more pleasant.

“Although we envisaged we would be increasing the dining capacity, we’ve actually found other uses for it as well which has been great for our school. Because it is a covered space we have been able to use it through the year for clubs, for teacher and parent events and it’s just been a very useful space for the children to go at various times during their week.”
