We aim to give all children as much experience as they can to love the world around them and make sense of it. We give the children responsibilities to help look after our class and school, which develops respect for our town and world.
We aim to nurture knowledge, kindness, wisdom, and desire to make our school a more eco-friendly place and ultimately to be part of a more sustainable world. We promote awareness of national campaigns to highlight ways to respect the environment.
Our Values – Eco Schools
The Eco-Schools programme is focused on ten key topics. These are:
The Eco School committee complete an environmental review and this raises which areas the school are going to work on during the year.
The children then work on targets as a school and join in national campaigns to help achieve these targets, these then go towards a Green Flag Award.
Each year the children take part in:
Road Safety Week - Brake
Switch Off Fortnight - The Pod
Big Schools’ Birdwatch – RSPB
Waste Week – The Pod
Walk to School Week – Living Streets
The Eco-Committee prepared for a visit from some assessors to see if our school can achieve the Green Flag Award. We are pleased to say that we were awarded this.
A big well done to everyone for taking part in our switch off electricity morning. The children have realised how many things use electricity.
The children have made posters and each class now has a light monitor. More children are remembering to turn off the lights which is saving energy and helping to save the planet.
