Parent waiting shelters

Parent Waiting Shelters for Schools

Parent waiting shelters provide protection from rain and sun all year round.

Pick-up times are busy periods for any school. This makes it important for schools to provide a designated area in which parents can wait for their children.

Our parent waiting shelters provide the perfect solution, offering shelter from the elements throughout the year and helping to minimise congestion around entrances and in corridors.


With no cleaning required and a ten-year installation and labour guarantee available as standard with all our parent waiting shelters, we can provide a long-term and hassle-free solution for your school.

Our parent waiting shelters aren’t simply an out-of-the-box solution. Because we understand that every school has different needs, we take the time to survey your building and grounds to ensure that the canopy we provide is tailored perfectly to your requirements.

Whether you need a canopy that runs alongside your building, or even one that wraps around corners, we can help. You can even customise the projection and colour in line with your school’s branding.

Find out how Bigland Green Primary School’s parent waiting canopy was customised to complement the school’s corporate colour.
As well as providing a space for parents to get out of the rain while they wait for their children, our waiting shelters offer protection from intense sunlight. The Melinex gel-coated roof blocks out 90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Find out how we helped St Gerard’s RC Primary School by creating a covered area for parents to wait under in inclement weather conditions.
The cantilevered design of our canopy systems allows us to install parent waiting shelters without fitting pillars, keeping your school grounds free of potentially hazardous obstructions – particularly useful in busy spaces such as play areas.
