March 2012

We now have 88 solar panels at the school producing upto 20 KWh. Thank you to Eco schools for providing us with this opportunity. One day last week we noticed that the meter was not moving at all which means we were making enough electricity to power the freezers, photocopier and other equipment!

Welcome to our eco school page.  We now hold the Bronze award as an Eco schools We want to show our commitment to building awareness and action in our children about the issues around global warming and our commitment to the environment and sustainability.

We think about looking after our planet in a number of ways. 
  • we try to turn off lights and the whiteboard screens over lunch
  • we recycle milk bottle tops to support the Gift for Sight Charity at Southampton Hospital
  • we look after the ICT suite and turn off computers at the end of the day to reduce use of power.
  • we have daily litter pick around the school grounds to protect wildlife and to build the sense of care in their surroundings.
