Eco Schools Bronze award

We are delighted to share our fantastic news that we have now earned our Eco Schools bronze award. To earn this award, our school had to meet the criteria set by Eco Schools which included setting up an Eco Committee, undertaking an environmental review and producing an action plan following on from the environmental review.

Our school has taken part in initiatives such as Waste Week, Switch off Fortnight and applying for a grant to enable us to compost our fruit and vegetable waste. The children have also been learning about looking after our precious plant throughout their lesson which has included writing to the Prime Minister to ban single use plastic.

We are really proud of our achievement and now looking forward to earning our Silver Award, and finally the Green Award. Well done to everyone at our school!
