Our Recent Eco Achievements
Green Flag Award
We are an accredited eco-school and we make every effort to minimise our environmental impact through the choices that we make.
We have recently been awarded the prestigious ‘Green Flag’ in recognition of our environmental awareness and the systems that we have in place to develop knowledge, skills and understanding in our school. Our current areas of focus include reducing our energy usage, minimising the waste that we generate - particularly single use plastics, and developing our awareness of our unique marine environment.
We encourage children to walk or cycle to school whenever possible, we monitor our energy usage and we aim to promote eco-friendly initiatives in both our everyday routines and in school events. We are signed up to the Plastic Free Jersey scheme and aim to minimise single use plastic waste across the school. Every ‘Waste Free Wednesday’ we celebrate packed lunches which contain no single use plastic packaging and we strive to make this an everyday routine.
Our Eco Committee, which is made up of pupils and adults, leads our development; they meet regularly, liase with other schools, and feedback to individual classes.
