The Eco School Page..!
Over the past 2 years our team of committed Eco Warriors have been working towards achieving a "Green Flag Award" for the school. This has involved the whole school working really hard on a range of projects recommended by the "Keep Britain Tidy" charity.
We put ourselves up for the Green Flag Award in December 2013 meaning we were assessed by an external moderator. They were extremely impressed by our hard work and we were granted the award - our only targets set were to "keep up the good work!" A big thank you and well done must go to our brilliant Eco Warriors and, of course, to the whole school for the effort you have all put in to gain this very prestigious award!
Well done Everybody!

Our Eco Warriors have hit the staff room. They use a special recording plug to see how much power appliances are using around the school. They then use this information to reduce our whole school energy consumption. Looks like the teachers coffee break is in jeopardy!
Willow Planting 1st April 2015
Every child in the school took part in the building of our new willow dome and tunnel in the field. This will grow over time to allow a quiet space for children to enjoy. It was a fantastic day and a real addition to our school grounds.
The Big Dig
We had a wonderful time on Saturday 28th March getting the school grounds ready for summer. Parents, children and teachers were involved in digging beds, building birdtables and picking up litter. Everyone worked really hard and had a great time. Thanks for all of you who gave up your time to help!
Recycling Christmas Cards!
Thank you to all those people who sent in their old Christmas cards. We collected and counted over 5400! The cards were taken to our local Marks & Spencer’s who, in association with the Woodland Trust, have agreed to plant a tree for every thousand cards collected – Well done LJS!
