We are School Playground Development and CPD Training specialists. We recognise outdoor play as a context to deliver real improvements across the whole School and Community.
We deliver our concept and design products appropriate for Early Years, Primary School, Secondary and SEN School play environments. We support this with nationally accredited CPD training awards which sustains the use of our concept and whole range of playground equipment for schools. All of our products and services have been designed as developmentally appropriate interventions and focus very closely on the correct ages and stages of a child’s development.
ESP have established a fantastic reputation within education by recognising and utilising the school playground as a context to deliver real improvements that contribute to raising standards in schools. Independent research confirms the positive impact of their approach to playground development. ESP are passionate about delivering their goals around raising standards and making young people more confident, healthy and determined to achieve.
ESP are specialist playground equipment manufacturers, playground equipment suppliers and playground equipment installers. Having developed thousands of schools throughout the UK, we have gathered years of experience, ideas and examples of best practice. The playground equipment is manufactured at our head office in Burnley and installed nationwide.
Our unique approach to the use of playground equipment in schools has been subject to independent research from leading universities. Leeds Metropolitan, Liverpool John Moores and Roehampton University have all been commissioned to evaluate the impact and sustainability of our concept. The NHS have to date invested up to £5m on ESP interventions designed to get children and young people more active more often. ESP fly the flag for the positive impact participation in daily high quality physical activity has on learning.
