Newcastle Primary School


Synthetic Turf Management transformed this school's play area with a colourful playground surface that can be used for various different educative activities.

We’re proud to have been selected as an approved contractor by Kier North East to design and install a 1500m2 MUGA (Multi Use Games Area).  We worked closely with the school to develop an artificial grass surface that encourages learning and interaction amongst its pupils. STM knows how effective these play areas can be in getting children to embrace education, that’s why we developed STM EPIC: Education and Play in Colour.

The school wanted us to create a safe play area for kids that could be used for both fun and education. So our team of synthetic turf specialists designed an area that incorporated numbers, games and sports to really maximise the school’s available space.

We thought a running track would be a fantastic way of encourage the pupils to get active. What’s more, our artificial grass products have various safety options, so taking a tumble on one of our surfaces is much safer than the traditional concrete playground.

Each design on this artificial playground surface was hand-cut into the blue backing surface by our master synthetic turf installers. Every MUGA we make can be tailored to fit that individual school’s needs.

Here at Synthetic Turf Management, we love a happy customer, so we were pleased to hear this feedback from Lynda Phillips, Headteacher:

“We had STM EPIC laid by Synthetic Turf Management on a large Key Stage 1 playground in February of this year. The work was completed to a very high standard and we are delighted with the results.

Synthetic Turf Management have kept to all of their deadlines and have acted in a friendly, efficient and professional manner from the planning stage through to the completion of the work. We were kept informed of developments at every stage and when on site the work progressed quickly due to the work ethos of the staff, often staying late and ensuring that the project came in on time.

The children are delighted with the results and the teachers have commented on the difference it has made to the behaviour at break and lunch. Many teachers are also using the markings within lessons to support curriculum.” Lynda Phillips – Headteacher Greenfields
