Green School Status

One of our school values is respect.  Children are taught from a very young age to respect the environment and how they can take constructive steps to prevent further damage.  In July 2023, we were given a ‘Silver’ Award’ for our ongoing commitment to the environment from the Kent Wilder Awards..  Our Wild Club, led by some older students, have championed change through the following initiatives:

  • Monthly beach cleans: Every class is timetabled so that one local beach clean is completed each month.  We recently committed to the Great British Spring Clean
  • Recycling
  • Growing our ow vegetables
  • Creating homes for local wildlife such as bat boxes, bug hotels, bird boxes and hedgehog highways
  • ‘No Mow’ May
  • Weekly wildlife clubs – monitoring local plants and wildlife
  • Honey Harvesting from our resident beehives
