A Potters Bar school is offering al fresco education all year round.
Thanks to a new canopy, children at Ladbrooke School, in Watkins Rise, can now enjoy learning outside whatever the weather.
Karen Friend, reception teacher at the school for eight years, wanted a durable, low-maintenance canopy installed outside her classroom.
She said: “The space we wanted to cover was an obscure shape on a slope, so the product needed to be made to fit.”
Firm, Able Canopies, was enlisted to solve the problem and Karen said it came up with “a great solution”.

She added: “It enables the children’s lessons to flow from inside to outside learning opportunities with ease and provides some protection from the sun, rain and snow.
“Many parents and governors have commented on how nice the canopy is and how much space it has given us access to – all year round.”
