Eco School

Welcome to our Eco Schools Page

We really care about the world around us and are always trying to think of what we can do to care for our environment and everyone in it, not just locally, but globally.

  

Congratulations to our latest members of the Eco Council for 2021-22

Welcome to:

Ruby, Izzy, Benjamin, Isabelle, Wilbur, Teddy, Bruce, George, Zander, Isabelle, Cameron, Matthew, Lara and Ollie. 

We've been awarded our Green Flag!

Thanks to the efforts of everyone in our school community making small changes, we have made a huge difference by working together. In July 2021 we were awarded our Green Flag for all our amazing work for the environment. Well done everyone!

Spring Term Eco Newsletter

The Big Pedal

 

We had great fun taking part in the Big Pedal. Everyone tried to make as many human powered journeys to school as they could. We all had a 'Fancy Feet Whirly Wheels' parade to show off our decorated bikes, scooters and shoes!

 

Environmental Review 2019

 

The Eco Schools team have been busy reviewing our Eco Credentials. We have saved brilliantly on energy and water with our new school building! Our Eco Council shared our three priority areas with the rest of the school in assemblies this week, they are:

 

Waste and Recycling

Transport

School Grounds

 

Transport

 

We’ve linked up with the team at Modeshift Stars to help our school take action on transport. Supported by the Department for Transport, STARS is the National School Travel Awards scheme that recognises schools that demonstrate excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. The scheme encourages schools to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel improving the health and well-being of children and young people.  

 

We have produced a useful guide to encourage parents and children to be active and healthy and look after the environment.  This guide promotes a 5 minute walking zone around Darras Hall Primary School.  We would like to encourage all families to support this initiative.  An active journey includes walking, scooting, cycling, and even park and stride if you are able to park a little distance away from school and walk the remainder of your journey.

 

For those of you that live out of the Darras Hall catchment area, please see the link for local buses.  Hard copies of local bus timetables are available from the school entrance.
