Today’s modular buildings are light-filled, modern spaces that aim to stimulate and inspire learning for students of all ages. Here are ten suggested uses of space for educational modular buildings – can you think of any more?
With increasing student numbers and schools looking to offer a wide range of additional support spaces, modular classrooms give learning centres the opportunity to vary the school day with separate areas to engage and interest students throughout their studies.
2. Wellbeing / Pastoral Rooms
Your pastoral or wellbeing areas should be a refuge for your students to be able to feel relaxed, supported and welcomed. Modular pastoral areas are increasingly used by schools and the benefits to students is key to their mental heath and wellbeing.
3. Special Educational Needs (SEN) rooms
Envoplan’s experienced team of educational consultants consider potential issues to ultimately create a safe space that reduces the negative parts of school life and builds on the positives; walls and floors designed to minimise off task chatter, lighting that does not affect concentration and layouts to make every student feel comfortable.
4. Early Years Nursery Rooms
Modular nursery buildings in your school grounds can not only bring in extra revenue but also give learners in the early years the chance to be surrounded by nature directly outside their classroom, with inside areas that are specifically tailored to appeal with primary colours, fabrics, child friendly seating and engaging designs.
5. Music Rooms
Using space in your school to add modular music rooms that encourages a knowledge of music learning gives students increased skills in areas such as maths, languages, memory, co-ordination and self-discipline as well as confidence in performing and greater social skills, reducing stress and anxiety levels in all age groups.
6. Extra Curricular Activities
From drama and dance groups to additional study areas, your hirers can use modular rooms without you paying to heat the entire school; especially useful in these days of uncertain costs.
7. Changing Rooms
Perfectly designed to be placed near your sports hub ensuring the maximum time spent by your pupils is doing activities they want, knowing their belongings are safe and dry and with clearly marked, bright and lockable facilities.
8. Eco Rooms
Some schools have dedicated areas that are left for responsible students to be in charge of such as noting plant growth or looking at climate change and what they can do to support our planet. Eco rooms look beautiful and have a real impact on students’ cares for the environment, both locally and further afield.
9. Storage Spaces
Modular storage spaces can be used by teachers or students to quickly locate what is needed for that lesson or activity without fuss or wasting time. Envoplan’s modular bespoke storage options for your school come in a range of sizes and choices and can include school colours, logos or mottos to make an eye-catching statement that will transform your teachers’ routines at work, leaving them more time to be able to focus on what matters.
