Sustainability

 

 

Welcome to our Sustainability Area this is where you will find all of our exciting news about activities and events which we are taking part in - both on a school level and on a national level.

We are a leading school in sustainability, being one of a few primary schools to have this title. We are actively encouraging and promoting Sustainability throughout the city and locally. We are an RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) training centre, a silver eco school and we have represented the city of Peterborough at local and regional level.

Sustainability is firmly embedded into the ethos of our school and we are striving to make it an inherent part in our teaching and learning. We have worked hard on developing many links and this is embedded in the work of the school and has been for many years.  

We are also working with PECT to encourage being outdoor in the local community. One aspect of this is our Year 6's visiting Kingfisher Court (our local residential home). During these visits, children have worked with residents to make bird feeders,  maintain the gardens, do still life drawing and had many sing songs! The children have thoroughly enjoyed this experience, which gave back to the community and our children vocational experience. 

Please explore these links we have made to take forward our work in this area. 

Ofsted would like all schools to be sustainable schools by 2020.
