The school is part of the Eco-Schools international award programme and has received the programme's 'Silver award' in recognition of its achievement in integrating sustainable practices into everyday school life.
- Encouraging an interest in biodiversity by observing local wildlife
- Planting and growing flowers, fruits and vegetables in the school grounds
- Composting fruit waste from morning break and lunch boxes - the resulting compost is used in the vegetable garden
- Re-using and recycling materials as much as possible – for example, the school kitchen recycles all boxes and other recyclable packaging
- Using recycled paper towels and other recycled products
- Encouraging minimal use of disposal packaging in children’s lunch boxes
- Having signs in cloakrooms and computer areas to remind children and staff to conserve water and energy
- Solar roof panels
- LED lighting in the School Hall
These form part of the school’s ‘Eco-Code’, which reflects the schools commitment to protecting the environment.
