For Schools and Educators

Update as of 1 May 2021: Our Schools Programme is now open

In light of updated Welsh Government advice on school visits, we are looking forward to welcoming schools back for fantastic learning experiences in the National Park and our centres at Castell Henllys and Carew Castle.

Welsh Government advice published on 30 April 2021 states:

“Schools and settings may wish to consider undertaking domestic day visits where visiting locations outside of the school or setting estate is integral to the learning experience.

“High quality educational visits play an important role in enriching teaching and learning as well as support learner wellbeing. Maximising time spent outdoors by learners has physical, mental and educational benefits. Generally the risk of transmitting COVID-19 is lower outdoors compared to indoors. However, mitigating measures such as social distancing or using face coverings where this is not possible and if relevant, and maintaining good hand hygiene, are still needed outdoors.”

National Park Authority Educators have risk assessments for all the schools programme sessions. Some restrictions on numbers and activities will remain in place.

Please contact the centres or the Discovery Team directly to discuss arranging a learning visit for your pupils.
