KS1 school washrooms to be proud of.

Constructed in 1984, Ysgol Saron in Carmarthenshire has 254 pupils who only communicate through the Welsh language until the age of seven years old. English is then introduced to the pupils in year 3 where all pupils aim to be fully bilingual by the age of 11. Gwenda Easton, the schools head teacher told us of the various awards the school has won. The new school extension included new KS1 school washrooms where the décor choices assisted them in receiving the ‘Learning with Autism Primary School Award’ which they are particularly proud of.

To help achieve a calming environment for the children Bushboard Washrooms were chosen for the KS1 school toilet cubicles on the project. Daniel Jones at T.A.D builders was the Senior Quantity Surveyor for the new extension and told us our Tiny Stuff range was specified due to the age group the extension was for. Daniel also went on to mention “the contrasting curved doors set the range apart from standard toilet cubicles”. Our Tiny Stuff cubicle range was designed with nursery and infant children in mind with anti-finger trap hinges and low height doors with no headrail for easy supervision. Having a calming environment helps to support children with autism and so choosing a tranquil and soothing colour palette was important to Gwenda. Bushboard’s standard range of 34 laminate colours gave total flexibility to find the perfect combination. The school opted for Mulberry doors and panels paired with whitewashed thatch pilasters, partitions and flashgaps.

Matching colour arrangements were selected for the rest of the school washroom with the ducting and the vanity unit supplied as ready plumbed modules. This means that the units are delivered ready to install with a carefully selected range of Sanitaryware and brassware fitted to the panels and pre-assembled in our factory meaning  on-site labour is kept to a minimum; saving both time and money. The schools semi-recessed vanity unit was supplied at our KS1 height with sensor taps for easier handwashing.

Gwenda believes that having “good quality washrooms ensures that pupils are provided with facilities they feel proud of and, as a result, will respect and care for”. The school feel they have achieved their goal of creating a modern, calm space that the children love.
