                            Our Eco Code:


Recycling and Re-using 

We will recycle and re-use everything we can. We will re-use scrap paper and save plain paper our school work. Every class will continue to use their recycling bin and these will be regularly emptied. We will put our drinks in re-usable bottles instead of throwaway containers and will look into the possibilities of recycling plastic bottles. We will choose re-usable bags over plastic bags whenever we can. We will try our best not to waste food and will look into having a composter in our garden.


We will not use any more electricity than we need. We already have lights with sensors in many classrooms and we will turn lights off when rooms are not in use. We will turn off computers and proctors when we are not using them and pupils will help teachers by reminding them at the end of lessons. We will not use any more than we need equipment like pencils, glue sticks etc. This means taking care of all property and being careful to put things away correctly.


Looking after Wildlife and Or Environment

We want our school to be welcoming and safe for all types of wildlife. We will help to protect our wildlife by clearing away all rubbish and litter which could put them in danger. We will be careful not to break branches off trees so that we preserve the habitats of birds, squirrels and other creatures. We will set up feeding places for birds and other creatures. We will look after our plants to attract insects and birds as well as providing new habitats and making our environment more attractive. We will also plant fruit and vegetables to encourage healthy lifestyles and help our learning.

Reducing Car Use

We will try to reduce our carbon footprint by walking, cycling and using public transport to get to school whenever possible. We will encourage our families to avoid travelling by car whenever possible or to share the journey with other people. We have a cycle rack for pupils’ bicycles which we will encourage people to use.

Awareness and Education 

We will have a page on our website dedicated to Eco-schools and we will keep this updated to let everyone know what we are doing. We will keep all pupils and teachers informed through assemblies and posters and will regularly ask for helpers for our projects. Teachers will make sure that children learn about ecological issues in all key stages and we will use cross curricular methods to develop this.
