Working towards a more sustainable school

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools and pupils on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important. We have the Bronze Award.

Our mission is to help make our school sustainable, to reduce waste and to bring about behaviour change in our pupils and those connected to them so that good habits learned in our school are followed through into homes and communities.

This year we are aiming to fulfil the seven steps to receiving the Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Eco/Gardening Club

We meet once a week and spend our time improving the school environment: we have made insect hotels, bird feeders and we keep the garden area at the back of the nurture room tidy. we planted the tyres with bulbs for the spring and flowers for the summer. We keep an eye on how carefully everyone uses electricity in school and encourage everyone to reuse and recycle waste.
