Our school is very proud to have registered as an Eco-School which recognises our commitment to developing strategies that sustain and enhance resources and the environment.

We have just appointed our Eco-Council Ambassadors for each class and they will be meeting regularly to ensure we raise environmental awareness, improve our school environment and also create financial savings through improving our use of electricity, gas and water throughout the school.

Our Eco – Council Ambassadors

We had a special assembly to introduce our Eco-Council Ambassadors to the rest of the school. Here are our KS 1 children receiving their certificates and badges. They are all keen and ready to get started!

The Eco-Council have had their first meeting and have completed the Environmental review. We have so many ideas we don’t know where to begin so have created an action plan to work on the areas we know need improving.

Biodiversity 

As stated in our action plan we have begun to create our wildlife area. We have been clearing the secret garden to create a better planting area and Mr Newton has been working hard putting us some new raised beds in. We decided to recycle the old log roll and leaves to create a bug hotel. We had great fun doing this!

We had great fun creating our bug hotel using old log roll and railway sleepers. We hope the bugs enjoy their new home!

Mr Newton has started to build our new growing area and we tidied up all the old leaves and plants. We will soon be ready to start growing lots of vegetables and plant wildlife loving plants.

Mrs Almond’s Eco Art Club used old plastic bottles and turned them into octopuses. We had a great time creating our recycled artwork.
