Learning shouldn’t be dull …it should be inspiring the future!
We are very aware that children love learning, exploring and new ideas. Our design team is focus on giving the child the starting place for their imagination to grow, enabling the child to use the playground markings in a variety of ways and learning while they play. Giving them the space to develop their independent learning.
We also create spaces that the teacher can use with individuals or a whole class across a variety of subject areas. From Space Exploration to the Insect Kingdom we have the designs for you!
Got a design in mind? Not a problem. We can tailor designs to your specification and show how best to place them in the space you have in mind. Need inspiration? We can help develop something special for you, just get in touch by phone, email, or use the contact form here on the website.
Markings & Designs
Mile A Day Circuit - New studies by experts claim all school children should run or walk a mile each day to combat a rising tide of obesity. With more and more schools joining the daily mile community we are pleased to be able to help by offering custom designed Daily Mile Circuits. Our design team will be able to present a suitable solution no matter how tricky the shape or size of the area you wish to place your circuit.
MUGA - We can convert your old sports court markings into an exciting new MUGA (Multi Use Games Area).
Our MUGAs will rekindle the kids enthusiasm for sports whist utilising the space available to incorporate multiple games, for example, a combination of netball, football, hockey and basketball. Our team will take your needs and priorities into account when designing, to make sure that the MUGA works for all games and sports taking into account everything from line thickness, colour to marking order.
Wall Markings - Sports, games and inspiration don’t need to be restricted to the floor! We have designs that are suited to utilises walls space too. From target practice to cricket stumps we have you covered.
Non-activity/ reading & quite Areas - Sometimes it’s important that children have a designated area that is a place to rest, read and just enjoy being quiet. Cain Markings offer Area designs that can be used for this sole purpose or perhaps a multi-purpose area that has differing functions on differing days to allow quiet moments but encourage engagement in other activity on other days. These areas can be designed with graphics, solid block colours, a simply coloured outline or a combination of all three.
Over marking - Completely new ideas or refresh old favourites!
Refreshing playground markings and especially sports or court lines is very important to portray how seriously you are investing in quality play and your pupils. Over marking on a regular basis, in accordance with the manufacturers regulations, will not only keep your markings crisp and clean but will also help build up the resistance to expected normal wear & tear enhancing the durability of the marking.
Temporary Markings & Occasion Markings
We can provide temporary markings for a specific occasion and removal after the event.
Cycling proficiency - We can mark official Highways England specification road markings, junctions, roundabouts etc., to give your pupils a real chance to experience real life situations they are likely to encounter in a safe environment.
Sports Day - Most sports day, especially in the Early Years, incorporate activities that don’t quite fit in the traditional markings. Schools like to be inventive in their team building and be able to incorporate large numbers of pupils taking part at one time. We can help support you in your efforts to make the day fun, inventive and active by laying out the markings you require.
Temporary Parking - Perhaps you are holding a Summer Fete, Summer holiday club or Christmas Fete and are using the playgrounds as additional parking. In our experience, we have found that by marking out temporary car parking spaces helps maximise and organise this area efficiently and, thereby, making sure the school environments is as safe as it can be.
A great option to offer flexiblity to your school environment as it grows and adapts through the Academic year. We offer many solutions including car parking , storages area, walkways.
