We are an Eco school, to help us achieve and maintain this status we take part in many fun activities, both in school and in the local environment. Caring for the environment is very much a part of our curriculum. Our aim is to reduce, reuse and recycle whatever and whenever we can. We have won the gold and silver awards from Arnold in bloom in the past years. Our children are exposed to growing plants and food whilst learning about why it is important to care for our surroundings.
We were the first Infant school in Nottinghamshire to be awarded the prestigious international Green Flag award.
In June 2020 we were awarded the prestigious Green Flag for the 7th time! Our assessor was really impressed by our efforts towards making our school an Eco school.
"The school continues to show outstanding commitment by everyone to creating a special place where there are outstanding opportunities to investigate, appreciate and understand the environment through active learning. The further extension of the outdoor opportunities for learning are exceptional, especially the many and various areas for gardening and the quality of the outdoor recources recently made by auxiliary staff. Displays of topics and class work are outstanding. There is clearly excellent liaison between all staff who work in the school to create an exceptional environment. Well done - wonderful work by everyone!"
The children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One have been learning about frogs and newts.
