GREEN FLAG AWARD FROM ECO SCHOOLS

 We are excited to announce we have been awarded our Green Flag with distinction by Eco Schools. Thank you to all the Eco Team, staff, parents and local community for their support, ideas and enthusiasm over the past year.

 

Quotes from Eco Schools :

We love your ambition in tackling the topics where you scored lowest in the Environmental Review. This shows you have a confident Eco-Committee dedicated to maximising their impacts.

 

We love that you went litter-picking as part of your Eco-Schools work. Litter-picking is fun, impactful, protects wildlife and improves local communities - as part of Keep Britain Tidy, it's one of the Eco-Schools Team's favourite activities.

 

We loved the Eco-Committee video, a wonderful way to inform and involve! Your Bonus Questions responses are strong and highlights the incredible work you have done in the past as well as this year!

 

It has been wonderful taking the time to assess your application! We especially love how all actions are designed to involve and engage pupils and enrich their school life - proving that being 'eco' can also mean having a lot of fun!

 

Congratulations on achieving your Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation.

   

25th May 2022 Bug Hotel renovations are underway

19th May 2022

As we took part in the  Great Big School Clean, we were entered into a prize draw and our school is a winner!

We have won a goody bag containing signed copies of Somebody Crunched Colin – the brand new book from environmental expert and eco-journalist Sarah Roberts.

The beautifully illustrated new book is the perfect tool to engage young people with recycling and the impact plastic pollution has on the environment. It tells the story of Colin; a crisp packet with an identity crisis – he thinks he’s a flower! He can’t seem to find where he belongs, but he smells so delicious that all the animals want to eat him.

 

Thank you for taking part in this year’s Great Big School Clean. This year, an incredible 261,024 pupils joined our Big Bag Challenge and helped to prove that nobody is too small to make a big difference.

Congratulations and kind regards from  

Sarah Roberts, Keep Britain Tidy, and Eco Schools England.

Walk to school 10th May 2022

Eco Fayre - Saturday 11th June - 10-12 noon

 

Our Eco Team and School Council are having an Eco Fayre to sell the plants they have grown.  It all started when we planted tomato seeds in toilet roll tubes!

 

There will also be books, toys and clothes available to encourage recycling.  The Eco and School Council teams are keen to get everyone involved in doing a little bit extra for the environment.  Refreshments and homemade goodies will also be available.  Remember your reusable cup and bags!

 

Please walk if you can - the butterfly car park is a good place to walk from and a good distance for little legs!

TEXTILE FACTS* from Bag2School   * WRAP report - "valuing our clothes"

 

  • The annual footprints of a household’s new and existing clothing are equivalent to the weight of over 100 pairs of jeans, the water needed to fill over 1,000 bathtubs and the carbon emissions from driving an average modern car for 6000 miles.
     
  • An estimated £140 million worth (350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year.
     
  • Consumers spend £44 billion year on buying clothes – or around £1700 per household. If clothes stayed in active use for nine months longer, this could save £5 billion a year from the costs of resources used in clothing supply, laundry and disposal. Given that over 5% of the UK’s total annual carbon and water footprints result from clothing consumption, savings of this scale would be hugely significant not only in financial and commercial terms but also environmentally.
     
  • By educating children on the importance of recycling, the concept of textile recycling will become part of everyday life for generations to come.
