We encourage the children to respect and care for the world around them. With this in mind we promote care of the school and school grounds. The children tend a vegetable garden, they feed the birds in the bird garden and look after the pond and wild life area.
They develop a respect for plants and animals and a desire to keep the environment safe. The school is taking part in an Eco-schools programme for promoting environmental awareness. The Eco-schools process is holistic. It works by involving the whole school – pupils, teachers, support staff, governors and the local community. There are three different stages to achieving Eco-school status and we and we were successful in achieving the highest award of Green Flag status in May 2012. The projects undertaken covered the following areas: school grounds, waste management, transport issues, litter, energy, water and healthy living. All classes recycle paper, plastic and vegetable waste, and make compost which is used on the vegetable plot. We also have an active worm bin!
