Friends funding for Cynefin Discovery Days

Support from the Friends of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is enabling more schools to have the opportunity to visit the National Park for learning.

The Friends of Pembrokeshire Coast National Park (opens in new window) are a local charity founded in 1991, to help to protect, conserve and enhance the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The Friends work to enhance public understanding of the conservation and sustainable development of the National Park among young people.  The group wish to enable more learners to make the most of opportunities to find out more about the National Park as part of a curriculum linked experience.

What’s on Offer?

The National Park Authority’s Education Team has received funding from the Friends, which is to be used to reduce the cost of booking activity included in the National Park Authority Education Programme.

The funding will cover the cost of bookings (currently £4.50 per child for a day) for a range of Cynefin Discovery Days available in the Schools Programme

All that you will need to provide is the transport and an agreement to share your good work – curriculum topic plans and pupil work.

Is your school eligible?

We are able to take bookings for groups during this academic year (2022/23) and next (2023/July 2024).

Support will be allocated one trip per school on a first come first served basis, although we reserve the right to target spaces to schools/learners who don’t currently make use of opportunities to visit the National Park.

Support is subject to availability of National Park Authority staff.

How to book

Please contact the National Park Authority’s Discovery Team to book a visit by emailing

Anything Else?

We ask that participating schools undertake to share any curriculum plans (associated with the visit) and examples of pupil work generated in response to the visits.

Collecting and sharing this work will help celebrate the learning outcomes from educational visits to the National Park and develop new resources to improve future visits.
