The Eco Warriors and Green Marines have been awarded the Eco Schools Silver Award only months after winning the Bronze Award.
They are now going for Gold!
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of our school life.
The Eco Warriors and Green Marines to get us all to be more aware of our impact on the environment!
The Green Flag Award is the top award available to schools working at being more environmentally friendly.
The National Healthy Schools Programme has four themes.
The four core themes relate to both the school curriculum and the emotional and physical learning environment in our school. Each theme includes a number of criteria that we were required to fulfil in order to achieve National Healthy School Status. Although each theme covers a different area, they are all delivered using the whole school approach so the basic requirements are the same.
It was recognised that our school had achieved this standard a few years ago. We were able to show that the pupils in our school were busy throughout the week, not just in PE lessons but also doing a range of before and after school activities.
The Investors in People Award is given in recognition of the work our school puts in to developing the members of staff. We do this because we realise that investing in our staff is a way of investing in our pupils. We make sure our staff have access to up to date courses and that they have opportunities to develop within our school.
That benefits the pupils.
