Starting in September 2008, a student council of "Eco Warriors" have led the school towards becoming an Eco-School, which we first achieved in January 2011. The Green Flag was presented to the Eco Warriors by Cllr. Ian Hudspeth, acknowledging the work of all the children who had been Eco Warriors, with the support of the whole school community. In 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 we faced a re-assessment, which we passed with flying colours each time, retaining our Green Flag status.
Our Eco Code
Look after the world locally and globally!
Walk to school when you can
Only use energy that you need
Rethink, refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot and repair
Look after the school garden and wildlife pond area
Don't drop litter or leave the taps running.
In May 2019 we received our "Green Flag" and International Eco-Schools award certificate for continued excellence in improving environmental performance and learning This is what the assessor had to say about our school:
"It was a joy to meet and talk with the Eco-Warriors this morning. Mrs Briggs is an inspiration and fantastic motivator for the group...
Environmental issues are at the heart of the school's ethos and this shows. All the children are part of what has given the school its Green Flag status."
Well done Eco Warriors!
