Head Teachers Introduced to Outdoor Musical Instruments

Head teachers gave up a whole weekend of their precious leisure time to meet in Birmingham last weekend: why?

The NAHT Annual Conference is an opportunity for the UK’s leading educationalists to meet together and discuss and debate the current educational issues of real importance. It also provided the delegates with opportunities to network with each other and the conference sponsors.

One of the official sponsors of this year’s conference was Percussion Play distributor Pentagon Sport. Pentagon are experts in the design, supply and installation of outdoor learning environments and playgrounds in primary schools and nurseries across the UK. Visitors to the Pentagon stand were able to enjoy some of the instruments from Percussion Play and explore some rhythm on the Cadenza, generate some creativity, excitement and energy with the Congas and soothe away the stresses by playing the Babel Drum.

Pentagon wanted the opportunity to meet and engage with the conference delegates, to gain a better understanding of what they care about and how they could create partnerships with them to improve outdoor areas within our schools. They sent numerous enticing tweets such as “Please come and see us and find out how you can get a FREE £10k playground for your school!”

Pentagon Sport recognise that cuts to the devolved formula capital grant have made funding for school playground equipment much more difficult. Pentagon offers a service with funding application experts managing the whole process on the schools behalf. With no upfront fee they have a 95% success rate with applications and could get you a grant for £10,000. They have successfully raised funds for all sorts of playground projects including outdoor classrooms and music and story areas.
