How can we support you?

The new curriculum is arriving here in Wales and the Four Purposes are driving this curriculum.  In creating ambitious capable learners, supporting healthy confident individuals, developing enterprising creative contributors and in developing ethical informed citizens.

Is your vision for your setting to get the children learning outside as much as they are inside?

Our Traed Bach Mwdlyd Outreach Programme is up and running!

Any theme or topic can be adapted for the outdoors and a bespoke session can be arranged for your setting.  For DIP days, immersion days or weeks, for a termly topic launch we can support you to get the learning outside and inspire the children!  Most of our sessions can take place within the school grounds, so no travel is necessary!

We can also offer support and training for staff development, risk assessment and site development and planning.

Browse our available sessions below or contact us for a bespoke experience!
