Eco Schools

We are a registered Eco School and are currently celebrating the achievements of the Bronze and Silver Awards.

Eco Schools is the largest environmental schools programme in the world and is operated in England by the charity Keep Britain Tidy.

“The programme provides a framework for learning and action around nine topics - biodiversity, energy, litter, global citizenship, healthy living, school grounds, transport, waste and water. It follows a very simple seven step process to lead schools on their journey to achieving a Green Flag Award.”

At present we are updating our Environmental review. This will lead us to create an Action Plan towards our Green Flag.

Our Eco-Committee is made up of children from each class in school. They meet each half term and help to promote Eco activities in school.

Eco Events during the last year have included:

Flower Boxes – These were made for us by students from the College of Further Education. We are busy planting bulbs and plants in them to brighten up our school playground.

Battery Recycling - We are currently recycling our used batteries and finding out why these shouldn't be going to landfill.

Eco Explorer Club 2021 (Tees Valley STEM Competition) - Y4. Exciting challenges to come up with there own innovative and interesting ideas for how they can combine important environmental factors to change a part of our school environment to make it more eco-friendly.

Healthy Living – Our delicious school lunches provide children with healthy choices every day.

School Garden – We are very lucky to have the knowledge, expertise and time of Phil Williamson who has done a wonderful job transforming our school garden so that our pupils can enjoy gardening this Summer. Thank you so much!

Look Out For:

Switch Off Fortnight– This was a project that encouraged children to think about energy conservation by switching off lights, computers and screen when they were not in use. (Summer term)

International Day for Biodiversity - Learning about our local environment. (Summer term)
