Eco Schools’ Work at Freshfield
Latest new Oct 2023 – we have successfully renewed our Green Flag Status! Please see below some comments from the inspectors:
2023 Our Eco Schools work is now embedded into the curriculum. The children recycle daily with their milk bottles and food waste. At snack time, children recycle their fruit waste, milk bottles and paper cups. They also know to put waste paper in the paper bin when they have been cutting. We have a dedicated Nature School area which the children visit and thoroughly enjoy on a weekly basis.
Latest News July 2021 – We are thrilled to announce that we have successfully renewed our Eco Schools’ Green Flag status in July 2021.
Latest News June 2019 – We are delighted to announce that we have successfully had our Green Flag status renewed. We welcomed an inspector from Eco Schools to visit school in June and he was very complimentary towards all the Eco Schools work at Freshfield.
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
As a school we have always been interested in the environment and decided using the eco schools programme would enhance our work with the children. We realised if we could inspire pupils at this early age to be conscious of their surroundings and have care for the environment this would stay with them for life.
As a smaller school we are always looking at ways we can make our budget go further and by following eco schools initiatives in the nine topics we hope this would help us make considerable savings.
We have been awarded the Bronze and Silver Awards for Eco Schools.
