We are an ‘Eco-School’!

We are delighted to announce that we are now an official ‘green flag’ Eco-School!

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging over 19 million children across 67 countries making it the largest educational programme on the planet. There are over 20,000 registered schools in England alone all working at different stages of the programme.

The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning.

After starting the process last September, the Eco-Committee worked incredibly hard on our chosen projects until lock-down. The school made huge progress with local recycling projects, litter reduction in the village and class teaching around global environmental issues which eventually led to the top award of the ‘green flag’ being awarded to the school in September 2020.

The award lasts for two years after which time we will have to re-apply and prove that we have continued to work hard on local and global projects to improve our local area and beyond. The new Eco-Committee are already looking forward to the challenges ahead!
