Eco

Our ECO Team is led by Mrs Lister and Mrs Peacock.  We meet every Friday lunchtime at 12.00noon.  There are children from most classes who are part of this team already and others who just come for some of the activities.  If you would like to join us please come along - all children and staff welcome. 

Green Flag Award

We have now had our next Green Flag Award Assessment (April 2017) and are very pleased to say that we passed.  A group of children showed the Assessor around school and included all the areas which show that we are an ECO School.  

 

Why not have a look at the notice board in the hall or come along on a Friday lunchtime at 12.00pm to join the the Eco activities - everyone welcome.

 

Our latest Green Flag Award - Assessor's comments 2015 (we are awaiting our most recent feedback from the 2017 assessment)

 

'We would like to congratulate you for all the time and effort that has been invested in environmental education at your school.  Your award is well deserved and reflects the hard work the school has put into the programme so far.'

 

'...The benefits of a whole school commitment and the ongoing activities have led to confident and knowledgeable children.'

 

'...The children have ownership and understand that the next review they undertake will result in ideas going into an updated Action Plan.'

 

Eco Code

We have put together a new Eco Code (see below)

The tree represents our school

The Eco Code is written at the side

The leaves are ideas of how to keep the code and protect our environment

We asked each class to come up with ideas of how to keep to the Eco Code in their everyday lives and we used these ideas for the leaves
