Special Needs Outdoor Playground Equipment
Our dedicated products team have consulted with SEN experts, teachers and children to design and perfect a fantastic selection of SEN Playground Equipment. With the intention to help children with special educational needs feel comfortable during a school day, the feedback from the children themselves has been invaluable!
As many children find free-flow, open-ended, physical play activities therapeutic, we have designed a brilliant range of playground equipment to provide children with regulatory, heavy work activities and breakout spaces in their playground.
Promoting self-regulation and providing therapeutic activities in the playground is important for any school catering towards children with SEN as they begin to understand how and when to calm themselves, recognising when they are becoming frustrated, overwhelmed or unfocused, children are able refocus themselves and become centred and ready for learning.
Designed with inclusivity in mind, our outdoor play equipment enables children of different abilities and ages to play and learn together, encouraging cooperation and socialisation in the playground.
Our expert SEN playground consultants are enthusiastic and dedicated to helping your transform your outdoor space to benefit your children. Working in collaboration with you and your children, they can help design and install an area that will improve children’s behavioural traits, emotional feelings, memory, sensory processing, communication, imagination, social interaction and sustained concentration.
Pentagon Play’s playground equipment for children with special educational needs is unlike anything else currently offered on the market and we are dedicated to continuously expanding the range and adapting our products to ensure they can be fully utilised by your children, no matter their ability. We love receiving feedback on our products and designs to help shape and perfect our range!

I am new to the nursery school and we needed to update the equipment that was here. After attending a bursars meeting and getting pentagon play out for a quote, you gave us the best service in respect of what we wanted and how we were going to get it installed. You were just great customer service. You were always keeping us posted, especially during Covid-19, about how we were going to get it installed. The teams that came out and did it were excellent and we couldn’t have asked them to do anything more. We were lucky we didn’t have any children in the nursery at the time which meant that it got done quicker. What it’s done for here is its given the children a new area and new garden so that they can make friends and socialise. Its really developing their gross motor skills, it is just looking fantastic and all of the parents are very jealous that they haven’t been able to come and use it and we’ve had lots of good, positive feedback on our social media page as we were monitoring how things were developing over the time and for our 2 year old area, it has just transformed their outside space because they now have got a purpose space for them. Which is got the multiple surfaces, it has enabled the to do anything and were still in the early days of them using it.Anita Cheeseman – Chertsey Nursery, Surrey
The timber canopies installed by Pentagon Play are amazing: they have enhanced the learning for the children in ways I didn’t think possible! They allow our little ones to freely explore and learn outside in all weathers. I love that we are able to take the classroom outdoors!

Installed by pleasant and professional people.Dave Corten - Penine Way Junior Academy, Derbyshire
We chose Pentagon for this project as we have used them before – we know that they deliver within timescales, have high quality equipment and have integrity in ensuring everything is done well.
Luke was fantastic at listening to the needs of the school and planned out what was required (and usually better)! He was very open and respectful too.
The children love it – one pupil said ‘Wow, it’s like wonderland’ another stated ‘This is the best place ever!’ It will provide an environment to enable high quality daily learning for years to come.
The installation was really quick and very professional. We did not hear anything from them. They transformed the whole area in a very short time with no problems.
We would definitely recommend Pentagon Play to other schools – fantastic from start to finish.James Hollinsley - Waltham Holy Cross Primary Academy, Essex
I must say, the service from Pentagon was fantastic and their knowledge of EYFS was important when helping us to develop our new area. What was once a muddy and underused space, is now an attractive free flow environment with plenty of resources for play and learningChantal Lancashire - St Teresa's Catholic primary School, Bristol
