      Forest school area

      The school shares a forest school area with our neighbours, Ysgol Gwynedd. This is a key space in the development of our outdoor curriculum and each class has weekly slots available to them to access the area. The school has a Level 3 forest school trained teacher who plans and coordinates the pupil access and outdoor curriculum. The forest school area is currently under development to meet all our pupils needs, particularly our sensory learners and wheelchair users.
