We are currently working hard towards the Green Flag award, which will show we are an
Eco-friendly school. As part of this, we aim to encourage pupils to use re-usable water bottles in order to reduce waste and help protect the environment from waste plastic.
We are delighted to announce we have now achieved the silver award. To achieve our silver award, we had to show how we cover environmental issues through the wider curriculum, such as sculptures from recycled materials for DT in year 3, environmental care as part of our PSHE curriculum, growing plants across the Science curriculum and our upcoming World Oceans Day for Geography in year 1 next term. We have also had to show wider community links, which is where our parent support with fundraising for our toilet twinning day was so crucial and much appreciated. The final stage was ensuring we have a dedicated Eco board in school, which can be found in our KS2 corridor.
We are aiming to apply for the final stage – the Green Flag – in Autumn term. Stay tuned for more information.
We would like to remind you that re-useable bottles can be purchased from the school office for £2.40.
