What Pentagon Play Are Doing In Regards To The Coronavirus Pandemic...
At Pentagon Play, we have been inspired by the work of schools and teachers during these difficult and uncertain times. Amongst the chaos and panic caused by the Convid-19 pandemic, teachers across the United Kingdom have been the shining light, they have been carrying on as normal to guarantee their classes and groups have an excellent education, ensuring that learning never stops.
In addition to keeping their classes in the classroom and practicing and promoting good hygiene to lower the spread of germs, they have also been providing parents and carers with all of the necessary information and resources they need to carry on a great standard of teaching at home, too.
From home learning packs to access to online resources, should children have to be sent home to self-isolate or the HM Government choose to close the school’s as they have done in other countries around the world, teachers have been preparing for all possible outcomes!
As the trusted provider amongst schools and nurseries and the leading playground specialists in the UK, we have taken the Covid-19 situation very seriously, undertaking all of the necessary measures to ensure the safety of our fabulous team members and all those we come into contact with.
Due to this, we are following the UK’s HM Government guidelines in everything we do going forward, and with daily updates about the ongoing situations, we are reviewing our practices daily to ensure our team’s, and those they come in contact with, health and wellbeing comes first.
So, What Are We Doing?
With our team members varying from those who work mainly from our Pentagon offices, our playground consultants who are on road participating in exciting consultations and our installers who work mainly on constructing our amazing play environments, we’ve put a number of measures in place to protect them and those they come in contact with.
For our office based team, they are now all set up to work from home with everything they need to be able to do so. By putting ‘home working’ into place, we’ve greatly reduced the number of Pentagon People in the same space, preventing the virus from spreading through our offices and affecting our team members.
Our office based team is set up and ready to continue taking enquiries about your amazing playground developments and improvements!
Our playground consultants, who mainly work on the road to listen to your exiting ideas, measure the development area and provide you with fantastic quotations and designs, have now developed a brand new way of conducting consultations. To give you added peace of mind during this time, our consultations and design presentations have gone digital!
You will still be able to speak and see one of our expert playground consultants while discussing your exciting ideas and plans, along with everything else we need to know to help bring your playground dream to life.
For those who are travelling the country, installing our exceptional playground projects, we have put extra precautions in place. As a team of typically two people, who don’t need your school site to be open while carrying out your installation and work exclusively outside, we are testing their temperature each morning.
If one of our installers does have a temperature or any other symptoms of the virus, they will be following the NHS’ advice about how long to stay at home for.
Whatever happens during the pandemic, our team will strive to continue delivering exceptional outdoor play environments for your children, ready for them to enjoy when they return to school!
As an award-winning institution, who have recently been listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For, we truly care about our team members, and those who they come in contact with, health and wellbeing.
We will do everything we can do and follow all of the HM Government’s advice regarding the current situation to deliver exception, educational school and nursery outdoor learning environment’s while protecting the wellbeing and health of our team members.
Our reputation is solidified with our fantastic partnerships with the NSPCC and Action For Children, who are just a couple of the amazing charities we support around the UK, improving the lives of children. Moreover, we are also one of the very few companies to be SSIP accredited and are proud to say that we have the best guarantees throughout the industry!
Our company-wide mission is to ‘improve children’s lives today, to shape happier and healthier grown ups tomorrow’, which we will continue with throughout the pandemic we are currently facing throughout the UK.
