* * * Great news! * * *
Our inspection on Monday went very well and we have qualified to keep our green flag for another two years.
Well done to members of the Eco Council (plus William, Leigh and Amy) who showed the inspector round and told her all about what we do.
And thank you to everyone who supports our Eco Schools status in school and in their own time. We couldn't do it without you.

DON'T FORGET OUR ECO-CODE -

The Spring Eco Race starts tomorrow
Get walking, cycling or scooting to school and earn points
for your class.
Check the Eco Board to see your class's last score and see if you can beat
it this time.
SWITCH OFF FORTNIGHT STARTS NEXT WEEK -
MONDAY, 20TH NOVEMBER
Children have learnt about this in an assembly and you will see our posters around school.
Remember to save energy by switching off anything that is not being used.
On Friday, 3rd November the Eco Council met and carried out an 'Environmental Review' which is a vital part of our application to renew our Green Flag.
We also gave the School Travel Questionnaire to the office staff for copying - please look out for this in book bags very soon. It should only take a couple of minutes to fill in.
Also coming soon - we will be sending home a bag for the 'Bag2School' scheme, together with details of how to fill it with unwanted clothes which will raise money for school.
The Eco Council met on Friday, 20th October and carried out a classroom check to see whether lights and whiteboards were being left switched on in empty classrooms. We were pleased with the results but will remind our classes to switch off when we leave the rooms empty.

ECO-RACE - AUTUMN LEG
2ND-20TH OCTOBER 2017
We have completed the first leg of the Eco Race for 2017-18, when we record how children travel to school. The aim is to encourage more families to walk, cycle or scoot to school where possible, not only for the health benefits but also to try to cut down on the environmental effects of travelling by car.
Congratulations to the classes with the highest scores for each week:
Week 1 - Class 6
Week 2 - Class 8
Week 3 - Class 6
We will be repeating the process in the spring and summer terms - hopefully the weather will enable more of us to walk, cycle or scoot comfortably!
