Eco School

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) has been an important and high-profile initiative which we have embraced wholeheartedly. We have an Eco-Club which are very proactive and meet regularly. We are very involved in the Sustainable Schools Award Scheme promoted by the Swansea LEA.

We have achieved the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum Sustainable Schools Award.

ESD links are now firmly embedded in our curriculum and the children have numerous opportunities to develop relevant skills and knowledge. As part of our sustainability work we carry out extensive recycling, manage water and energy waste carefully and a range of other sustainable initiatives.

We compost our fruit waste in compost bins and grow vegetables and fruit trees in our school garden and in the orchard in Duke Field. Events are frequently organise events to promote our commitment to this initiative. Every effort is made to purchase fair-trade products whenever possible.

The Eco Club were also proactive in helping the school become a Surfers Against Sewage Plastic Free School, winning what was the coolest ever looking award in the process which now hangs proudly in the school foyer. While it was the Eco Club who were the driving force, arranging such things as a beach clean and the instillation of a new water fountain, it took a whole school effort to achieve the status.
