Shelters for Schools

It’s great to see so many teachers and schools embracing the opportunity to learn and teach outdoors.

We want to help in anyway we can and one of the supports we have put in place in East Ayrshire schools is high quality, long lasting shelters!  A sample Risk  Assessment can be found at the bottom of this page.  Read on to learn how different establishments have chosen to use their own shelters.






Logan Primary have put their shelter up near the Chicken shed and polytunnel – what a diverse playground they have!

Onthank pupils helped our team to set up their shelter!

Hillhead Primary have  put their  shelter  next  to  their  newly  designed garden  area,  it  looks  great!

Hurlford Primary have put their shelter next to the polytunnel.

Fenwick have placed their shelter in the wildlife garden.

Shortlees love their shelter so much they have 3 spread around the school estate!

Gargieston pupils were really pleased with their shelter – it is close to the wildlife garden so they will be able to bird watch from there!

St Joseph Academy PE team were happy with this new feature, the perfect base for orienteering sessions.

St Patricks have done a great job of erecting their shelter in the wildlife garden.  They will be able to study nature really close up!

Mauchline are looking forward to reading more stories under the shelter!
