Our school is very proud to have registered as an Eco School which recognises our commitment to developing strategies that sustain and enhance resources and the environment. We are aiming to be awarded our full Green Flag status, which will be a result of the hard work of our pupils, parents and staff in addressing environmental issues. The school has adopted an Eco Code, and various policies which is shared by everyone.
Eco Club meets in Room 34 (Humanities) with Mr Owen (Eco Schools Coordinator) & Mr Johnston-Cree (Eco Schools Deputy-Coordinator) every Friday. The Pupils share ideas, plan workshops, discuss environmental issues, maintain the school gardens and run competitions which help our school to work towards achieving our Eco Schools targets. Each Year group in the school also has their own Eco Warden that reinforce the team’s goals. More information about Eco Schools can be found on their website www.ecoschools.org.uk
