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.
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 a 20% shift from travel to school by car to walking, cycling and scooting to school!
Congratulations to 4K who are the most active class in June. Congratulations, also, to the whole school community for hitting an all time high: 80% of all journeys to school in June were active. Well done!
This year, we have been working with London Sustainability Exchange on a variety of air quality projects, including an anti-idling campaign. Year 4 has measured the air quality around our site, gathering the data over a period of weeks, and the results are as follows:
We hold a Modeshift STARS bronze accreditation for our School Travel Plan.
We have recently heard that we have been awarded silver accreditation and the plan has now been submitted for gold!
