The new play area at Norwich Primary Academy, in Clarkson Road was installed at the end of the summer term with the finishing touches added over the school holidays.

Built with a ‘wild wood’ theme, the playground includes a den, a crawl tunnel, climbing frame with balance boards, as well as a story telling area.

Damian Weare, Norwich Primary Academy principal said: “Our pupils really enjoyed getting an early taste of the new playground at the end of term, and I’m sure both new and returning pupils will love using it from September.

“It has areas for both outdoor learning and play and is a real boost to what we can offer to our younger pupils.”
