Welcome to our Green Schools Page

We are currently working on our 5th green flag. The theme for the next two years is biodiversity.

National Scoot to School Day 2023

Well done to all involved in National Scoot to School Day 2023!!


What is biodiversity?

Biodiversity looks at steps which can be taken in schools to increase awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats, and to increase species-richness in a locality.

Our School Garden: 

We have a beautiful new school garden. This is a fantastic addition to our school grounds, and will greatly help with our biodiversity theme. 

Check out the before and after photos!

Green School Committee

Our first step was to pick our committee. Well done to all those who applied. It is great to see so many children interested in protecting the environment.
