Eco School

We’ve signed up to the ‘Eco-Schools Programme’ and children, staff, families and governors will have opportunity to engage with environmental issues that are important to them and to take action to protect the environment and have a positive impact on our planet.  Take a look at the Eco-Schools website at:

Get Involved:

We want to say a huge WELL DONE to everyone that took part in the ‘Bike to School Week’.  You can feel very proud that your actions and those of other families that took part, were not only a very healthy option, but they benefitted the environment.  If you want to continue cycling or scooting to school, or if you have been inspired to begin, please be aware that we have dry storage for bikes and/or scooters in each school.  Remember to bring a lock if you intend to leave bikes/scooters on site.  Please remember to stay safe and wear bike helmets too.  

If you chose to enter the prize draw with Sustrans, please remember to check your emails to see if you have won the Frog Bike and please remember to claim your prize before the deadline of Friday 15th  October 2021.  If you have won, we would love to hear about it too and if you’d like your photo on our school website, please send one in.

 

Eco-Committee:

Representatives from each class will soon become part of our Eco-Committee.  They will work with staff to run the Eco-Schools Programme in our schools and in our nursery.  Please encourage your children to think about which values an Eco-Committee member needs.

Our first Eco-Committee Members meeting with children from SISN was held on Friday 1st October.  We used the Eco-School Review forms to evaluate SISN’s ecological credentials.  The Eco-Committee Members from HJS each led their class in completing the review for their school.  A full report of the review will be posted soon.  We are proud to say that the children were confident to talk about how our Federation is doing well environmentally, and the children had lots of great suggestions for how to improve in future. 

The children made posters to remind us to recycle. 

These will be displayed around school.
