How a creative playground can boost mental health for pupils

With the recent lockdown and uncertain times, young people are continuing to struggle with maintaining their mental health. This is exactly why many schools are now looking at ways to help children improve their overall wellbeing from any age.

Now they are back at school, children should be assisted with improving their wellbeing. A fantastic place to start is by increasing activity levels during break and playtimes. Exercise is proven to boost mental wellbeing, therefore any steps which can be taken to encourage children to be more active will boost their mental health as well as physical.

At UniPlay we specialise in designing and implementing creative playground markings for schools throughout the UK, helping their pupils to increase activity levels which has a proven effect on mental health for children. The key benefits of playground markings include:

  • Group play
  • Developing confidence
  • Support classroom learning
  • Increase activity levels
  • Learn key social skills
  • Creative play development

Mental wellbeing for children can be a difficult topic however, many of our schools have found by encouraging physical activity their pupils have been able to reduce the symptoms of stress and anxiety. Playground markings can be designed to suit all of the year groups at your school, making them an ideal tool for children of all ages to boost activity levels.

From traditional playground games through to Daily Mile tracks and even maths and maze markings, we design a huge range of markings which can work towards developing a creative playground for your pupils to enjoy. There are also many more benefits to installing playground markings, which our team will be happy to discuss with you further.

Having an engaging playground can not only help your pupils to develop key social skills such as working in teams and communication with their peers but can also impact on their mental health.

Exercise and mental health come hand in hand, therefore by having colourful and interesting markings on your playground can help children boost their confidence, activity levels and overall mental health.

We work with schools throughout the UK on creating a bespoke playground for their pupils to enjoy. We can incorporate education, creativity and active play into a single playground.
