Haseltine Primary is a school in partnership with Fairlawn Primary school. Staff, governors and children work together to harness each other’s strengths and expertise so that children are offered the best possible education.
At Haseltine they aim to create a happy school where the learning atmosphere is relaxed and conducive to high attainment. They believe that every child should learn the skills for life long learning and be supported to develop as good citizens who contribute fully to their community. For the children to reach their full potential they need to work in partnership with their parents, carers and colleagues. Helping children to do their best is vital and working in partnerships allows Haseltine to understand what children are learning and what they are able to achieve.
The Challenge – to design & install a new school staff car park gate
Following regular improvements to the school and grounds, it was felt that the old car park gate no longer provided the required security, the needs of the staff or an aesthetic value now associated with Haseltine Primary School. The challenge was to create, produce and install a single bespoke, custom, automatic school gate that endorsed the school brand.
The Solution – on-brand bespoke, custom, automatic school staff car park gate
Having previously designed, produced and installed four bespoke ornate school gates for Haseltine Primary School, Pylon Design proposed a simpler design that focused more on the school logo. As the new gate was to be automatic, the simplicity of the design aided the functionality of the gate which is operated by a fob system activated when staff members approached the gate. The single gate slides sideways into a specially built cage behind the school perimeter brick wall, being invisible from the outside. A large, circular Haseltine Owl logo was applied to the outside of the gate endorsing the brand, creating a unified overall image that reflected the innovative ethos of the school. The new bespoke, custom automatic staff school car park gate complimented the existing school gates in a practical and creative solution.
