Welcome to our Eco Page
Bio diversity is a topic that affects us all - insects, mammals, reptiles, trees and birds. All species, including humans, require a basic range of resources to keep them alive and healthy. We have a wonderful wildlife area with a pond, bug hotels, hedgehog shelters, bird boxes and feeders.
The children are aware that saving energy is good for our environment. Our children are encouraged to:
- turn off lights when they leave the classroom
- turn off projectors that are not being used
- turn off laptops when not in use
We all look after our school and grounds by ensuring that any litter is picked up and put into a bin. Colourful bins are on the playground and the children use these when peeling their fruit. The children are always keen to use the brooms and litter pickers at play time to keep our grounds tidy.
We have recycling bins in every classroom and common rooms. We recycle used pens, printer ink cartridges and greetings cards. The Friends of the School, our fund raising parent support group, recycle donated school uniform. They sell second hand uniform at our regular fund raising events. Within our school grounds we have a compost bin that we use to recycle tea bags and uneaten fruit.
We have scooter and bike racks to encourage our children ride to school. We take part in the Walk to School Week challenge.. We discuss with the children the health benefits of walking to/from school and how not using a car cuts air pollution.
We save water by having sensor operating taps in our toilets. We installed water hippos in our toilet cisterns to conserve water when flushing. We also conserve rain water by collecting it in water butts.
We have a sensory garden and wildlife area within our school grounds. We hold Eco evenings where pupils and their parents are invited to get involved with the up keep of these amazing assets to our school. We have planted seeds to create a wildflower border along our boundary fence on the school field. In the spring, we hope to see a colourful display of wild flowers that will attract and help lots of wildlife to thrive. The children have been painting cobble stones to create a feature in the middle of our wildflower border.
We teach how important diet and exercise are to having a healthy life. Fruit is provided for all the children in the mornings. Delicious and nutritional school lunches are cooked on our premises and cater for various dietary requirements. We grow fruit and herbs in our sensory garden.
