Eco-schools

As a proud holder of the Eco-Schools Green Flag, the school aims to embed the principles of sustainability into our day-to-day activities. Our Eco-Schools Committee, which has representatives from Years 1 to 6, meets each term to consider how we as a school can improve our environment – at school, at home, and further afield. From ‘Walk/Cycle/Scoot to School Week’, growing sunflowers and organising litter collections, to monitoring the biodiversity at Forest School, being part of the Eco-Schools scheme enables us all to enjoy and protect our environment. Our Eco-Schools motto is:

Walk, cycle, scoot

Only use what you need

Recycle, re-use, compost

Lights out, taps off

Don’t drop litter

Monthly Eco tips

September:   Deter fleas naturally by putting a clove of crushed garlic into your pet’s food twice a week. Reinforce and counteract any smell by putting lavender and rosemary into your pet’s foods.

October:       Keep chemical waste out of waterways. Never pour paints, used oil, cleaning solvents, polishes, pool chemicals or insecticides down drains, sinks or toilets. Contact your local sanitation, public works or environmental health department to find out about hazardous waste collection days or sites.

November:  Switch it off! Did you know; the average microwave, when not in use, uses more energy to power its digital clock than to heat food!  Keep it off at the mains until you need it.
