At Woodhall school we endeavour to provide children with an education and set of skills that encourage them to aspire to be the best version of themselves they can. We wish for them to question the world and consider their place within it. As part of this, we strive to encourage children to consider their impact on and relationship with the natural world.
To show our commitment to this, Woodhall school has become part of a national Eco-Schools Programme which is a pupil-led, hands-on learning project that gets the whole school and the wider community involved in exciting environmental projects.
At present, we have received a Bronze certificate for this and are well on our way to reaching Silver award with a view to eventually achieving the final Green Flag award.
The children have been very keen to get involved with this and we have a thriving Eco Council and Eco buddies who meet regularly to discuss ways to improve our school on an environmental level. The children have delivered assemblies on issues they feel passionate about and are seen as role models within the school environment.
Projects we have been involved in so far include:
- Switch off fortnight.
- Waste and litter week
- Battery recycling
- Gardening projects
- World oceans day
- Plastic waste
