Update on our mission to become an Eco-School

In order to become an eco-school, there are several things we must do as an academy. The projects below are what we are currently up to…

  1. Litter – we have a team who regularly go and clean up the local area
  2. Waste – crisp packets and plastic stationary recycling scheme plus we are campaigning to the council about composting
  3. Biodiversity – Plans for a wildflower garden
  4. Energy – stickers have been placed on sockets as a reminder to switch things off
  5. Transport – following a survey about traffic, we will be holding a parent awareness campaign to help reduce air pollution before and after school
  6. Healthy eating – plans in progress for a vegan tuck shop with minimal waste

We will keep you updated on our quest, with regular updates. If you would like to find out more about eco-schools in general, please visit their website www.eco-schools.org.uk/
