Treloar’s was delighted to welcome Patron Alan Titchmarsh on 27 June to open a fabulous new and exciting outdoor play and learning area for its School students. This bright, vibrant area provides younger students with access to an outdoor play area which stimulates the senses and encourages learning in a fun, hands-on way. With the sun shining, the official opening was a huge success and everyone had a great time testing out all the new equipment.

This area has been specially designed with a track for students who are learning to drive their own wheelchairs, an accessible roundabout and a large nest swing. There are sensory areas, learning areas, raised beds for growing plants and vegetables, sand and water play - all at the right height to be accessible. The area also includes a wooden shelter, ensuring the area can be used all year round. As one staff member stated: “It’s wonderful; the children are definitely enjoying the new playground – it’s a massive change to playtime.”
