Playground Markings Testimonials from Schools

 “Our school was lucky enough to receive £4000 in funding from the Tesco Bags of Help grant, and we worked with IQ to choose the best playground games and markings to suit our 400+ children ranging from age 3 to 12. We are absolutely delighted with colour and design of the games and markings. The children love playing on them during breaks and outdoor class time and they have really brightened up what was a boring grey space. I’d thoroughly recommend other PTAs do the same”

 “I’m just back from the UK and have had a chance to admire the markings and traverse wall work. Great…thank you. Can’t wait to see the children’s faces on Tuesday morning.”

 (Tuesday …!)  “After the holiday, when the children came to school and went out onto the newly marked playground it was like watching them on a Christmas morning!

 Such excitement. It was wonderful to see the children enjoying the new games and markings on the playground. I happen to be speaking to Year 4 in the afternoon and when asked about the playground their unanimous comment was ‘It’s so cool!”   

Karen Tuckwell, Head of the Junior School, The British School of Paris


 “Hi Mike, Just thought I’d drop you a line to say a big thank you to you and your team. The playgrounds look fantastic and children, staff, mums and dads haven’t stopped commenting on how good it all looks. Your guys were fantastic too. Great job, very accommodating, friendly to all, great with the kids and very easy to work with. They are a credit to your company”. Thanks so much again      

D Benstead, Deansfield PS

 “The installation team were superbly efficient and set to task quickly despite bouts of drizzly rain. They were extremely professional throughout and we were surprised by the speed that the markings were put in place. The location of the climbing wall had to be changed but that posed no problem to the team. We are very pleased with the markings.”

 Angela Burton Christ Church Primary School, Lewisham

“We had our playground remarked with your company last week and I felt that I must write to tell you how impressed I was with the two young gentleman who did the work for us. The guys were accommodating to our timetable and needs and were hard at work all the time they were with us. It was a very painless operation to have the markings re painted and the two chaps were working hard to give us top quality service throughout. The playground looks amazing now and the children are very excited by the colourful markings.

 I just felt I had to write to tell you how impressed I was and I hope that you will share this with the two guys who did the work for us. Thank you so much”

 “We cannot recommend IQ playgrounds enough. We were impressed with all aspects of their service. The company bent over backwards to fit us into their busy schedule. They were ultra efficient both over the phone and when on the school premises. The crew on the day did a brilliant job – they listened to our needs but also gave us some great advice through their experience of installing markings. They were easy to work with and carried out the job with the utmost professionalism. We could not have been more pleased with the result and it has transformed life in the playground for our children  The school is busy saving up for some more markings from IQ!…….Thank you so much!!!”

 “IQPG provided an excellent service in the installation of our playground markings.  From the start of the process the communication was excellent and the people very friendly and helpful. 

 The installers were fantastic and worked around the weather (very late into the day), which meant they could complete the project on time.  The look on the children’s faces when they arrived for school the next day and saw the markings was amazing.  Thanks again”.
