New play equipment could be provided at St Philip’s School, Uckfield

Plans have been submitted for new play equipment to be installed on the corner of the school field at St Philip’s Primary School in Uckfield.

One of the proposals is to replace the grassed surface with porous artificial grass so that the area can be used during winter months.st philips school ready

Information before Wealden Council says the play area currently contains wooden equipment which is about 20 years old and nearing the end of its useful life.

It adds: “The main school playground is tarmacked, has no installed play equipment and offers limited scope for physical and imaginative play experiences.”

The new structures would be formed using pressure treated timber poles and would include a rock/ball wall that is 1.8 metres high and three metres long, a tepee grame, roll-over/chin-up bars, monkey rings, racing monkey bars, rock ramp hut, a clamber stack, drop rope traverse, parallel rope walk and step up balance beam.
