Green Flag Award

We are delighted to have been awarded the Green Flag by Eco-Schools. You can see this flying in our playground.

Our Eco Warriors have been working towards this for the last 12 months. The carried out an environmental review of our school and set an action plan identifying improvements that they would like to make in strands relating to Energy, Waste and Transportation. They undertook a number of initiatives including measuring heat loss using a thermal camera, increasing the amount of composting and recycling, and holding the Sustrans Big Cycle event. They met regularly to check the progress they were making and submitted their work to Eco Schools who have awarded us with the Green Flag.

We are really proud of the achievement, and of all the hard work that our Eco Warriors do. They will continue to address environmental themes and will work towards re-accreditation in 2023.
