EXCELLENCE AND ENJOYMENT

Eco Warriors

July 2018 - We proud to report that we have just been awarded our second Green Flag.

 

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.

 

The programme provides a framework for learning and action around ten topics – marine, biodiversityenergylitterglobal citizenshiphealthy livingschool groundstransportwaste and water. It follows a very simple seven-step process to lead schools on their journey to achieving a Green Flag Award.

 

The programme is pupil-led and encourages whole school involvement. It also encourages closer links between schools and their communities. It offers many benefits for individual pupils, developing their knowledge and skills and improving their well-being. There are also many benefits for schools, with an added bonus of saving money.

 

Over the last two years the whole school has been very busy working on the following areas:-
