This year we have a new range of aims to work on. They are:

  1. To recycle food waste into compost (and to use it in our polytunnel)
  2. To work with our Pupil Council to create compost from leaf mould (again for our polytunnel)
  3. To implement and encourage healthy eating in the school
  4. To take part in Grandparents Gardening Week 

Please keep an eye on our Homepage to see how these projects develop across the year


We have a new Eco-Council this year and are once again working towards our Green Flag. We have planned out a range of great eco-projects (including reducing the use of paper in the school and encouraging the reuse of waste) and the school community has been busy raising money to purchase a new polytunnel to teach about food production, biodiversity and to give all our children the chance to grow fruit and vegetables.


The Eco-Council helped Belle to plant our wildflower garden!
