As part of our overarching ethos to instill in the children an awareness of their environment and how to care for it we have undertaken the Green Flag Award. As part of this we elect a group of children from all the classes to be our Eco-Warriors. These children work with a small group of adults; both teachers and parents to remind the rest of the school community how to treat and respect their world.

We have now achieved our Bronze, Silver and Green Flag Awards. As part of this all the children have explored the whole concept of “Reduce, Re-use , Re-cycle and saving fuel and water. They have looked at environments that need our help and the idea of de-forestation and global warming.

The school is committed to all things green and we now have a Biomass system which provides the whole estate with heat fuelled by our own chestnut coppicing. We have also fitted solar panels to new builds and the swimming pool building. We now re-cycle up to 80% of all our waste and have a wide range of bins to help us achieve this.
