Our school is amongst breathtaking countryside which gives us all the more reason to be a green school. Our Eco Council are a very enthusiastic group of KS2 students with wonderful views and ideas on how to make our school as ecological as possible. Along with being ecological we also endeavour to protect the wildlife, we have a small pond at the bottom of our playing field to encourage wildlife. We also have a daily litter picking collection to maintain a clean environment for both the children and the wildlife.
At the end of 2011 we had our 3.99kwp solar panels installed and they have already generated money and saved CO2. The solar panels are a great way to show how we can use renewable energy. Click here
to see how much we have saved already.
We have an ECO classroom that was erected in June 2005. It is made from wood and has a grass roof. The classroom is very energy efficient; it stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It has large windows to allow the sun to fill the room with light. The class also has their own vegetable patch where the children can grow many different types of vegetables including new potatoes, carrots and cabbages.
As a school we recycle waste paper, cardboard and food wastage.
We will continue to keep our school ECO friendly and teach the children the concepts of being ‘green’.
