As you know we have achieved Eco Schools status and the Green Flag Award. Eco Club meet regularly with Mrs Platts and Miss Travis to work on Green issues in school. This year they are working on

  • biodiversity in the school garden by building new bug hotels and adding more bird feeders
  • waste by encouraging more recyling in school
  • litter by litter picking in and around the school grounds
  • energy and water by showing our peers how to save energy and water
  • transport by encouraging sustainable travel

    As part of this work Eco Club have created a 5 minute walk zone around school. They would like families to park outside this zone and then walk to school.
