We are proud to be a Green Flag Eco-School – a distinction we have held since 2006.
Our Eco-Team is made up of representatives from Years 1-6, members of staff and parents. The team meets regularly to work on our action plan, which is formed by completing our environmental review and responding to suggestions from pupils. The aim of the team is to make the school more sustainable and educate the members of our school community as to how they can help to achieve this.
In September 2019, we became the first school in Surrey to hold a Modeshift STARS gold accreditation for our School Travel Plan.
We participate in the Living Streets Walk to School Challenge to try and increase the number of pupils who walk, cycle or scoot to school and to reduce the number of vehicles around our school site.
We are delighted that, over the past two years, we have seen almost a 30% shift from travel to school by car to walking, cycling and scooting to school!
Congratulations to Reception Swallows who were the most active class in December, with a whopping 93% ‘green’ journeys to school. Well done!
