Green Flag is not easy to achieve. However, due to our very creative curriculum, sustainable learning embedded into day-to-day life at our school, our dedicated staff and children, we have managed to maintain our status. We are very proud to have held our Green Flag award for 6 consecutive years. We have 3 Green Flags and are well on our way to our 4th! We try very hard to keep detailed records of al of our children's achievements. We have consistently worked hard on energy reduction and embedding a conscious behaviour change among children and staff. Our challenge is our kitchen use. We have a very high take up of the universal school meals programme and as a result our usage in the kitchen has increased significantly. We try to work with our private catering team to ensure that they are also conscous about energy use and sustainable practices in the kitchen. Simple changes to applicances and behaviour for example resulted in a reduction of our usage by one third in one year.
Take a look at our Sustainability Targets for the coming year.
Schools are encouraged to incorporate learning about sustainable development issues into everyday school life.
'Eco-Schools' is an international award programme that guides schools by providing a framework to help embed these principles into each school day.
