How Children can benefit from the Right School Furniture

When you send your children to school in the mornings you assume they are getting the best education possible, but did you know that the right furniture can make a big difference in the way they work? If the furniture your school is using is uncomfortable and ill-designed, it has been found that this can effect a child’s concentration, wellbeing and even handwriting.

We have listed the top 3 ways that school furniture can be designed in order to maximise productivity and aid learning for children aged between primary school all the way up to secondary and beyond.

1) Ergonomics

Ergonomics refers to the way the human body interacts with other objects such as furniture; if for example a table is too small for the user this can lead to an uncomfortable experience and therefore a reduced attention span in the classroom. If your child is taller than average they could suffer in the classroom due to low desks or small chairs – a one size fits all model does not work.

An ergonomically designed set of furniture would greatly improve the comfort and therefore behaviour of children in the classroom, if they are having to bend on a regular basis it can have a negative impact on not only posture in the future but also cause issues with back pain. Take a look at the range of educational desks we offer.

2) Quality

A child will sit on a classroom chair for up to 6 hours at a time and will be in school for up to 11 years, therefore it is of great importance to provide furniture that is high quality and comfortable. Furniture is often the last thing considered when a classroom is fit, and keeping costs down is seen as an essential, but here at The Essex Group we believe the more you invest in your school furniture the more children will respect it and this will prevent graffiti and lead to longer lasting, quality furniture.

3) Adaptability

Having the ability to change and adapt your learning environment can provide great benefits to the way children learn. It has become common practise for teachers to alter the classroom layout to undertake tasks and activities, so having furniture that allows you to do this easily can reduce the time it takes to set up and maximise the time you have for teaching.

Working as a part of a group is also an essential for learning and growing, so having the ability to rearrange desks and seating for this to be achieved with ease can greatly improve learning in the classroom.

Here at The Essex Group we provide furniture that provides all of these qualities and more. Take a look at our unique breakout seating range, perfect for re-arranging the classroom and enabling group work.
