Eco Schools

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.

Our mission as an Eco school is to help bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in our schools are followed through into homes and communities.

All of the Eco activity in our school is driven by the children and our Eco committee in particular.  You can find out about some of the things we do by looking at photos from some of our events. 

We will use this page to keep you up to date with Eco news and ways in which you can get involved.

During the autumn term 2016 our school was lucky enough to receive funding from the windfall project which has enabled us to buy a new potting shed and develop new allocated gardening areas for each class. The shed has a ramp and wide double doors so it can be easily accessed by all pupils.

In the summer term 2017 we held a whole school gardening day. Parents, staff and children went outside into our school grounds and planted fruits and vegetable to grow and tidied their areas.
