We’re delighted to have reached Gold on the Green Tree Schools Award and our smart cedar wood plaque has arrived from the Woodland Trust.
The Green Tree Schools initiative, which has seen more than 12,000 schools sign up since it was launched in 2008, offers the opportunity to bring the great outdoors, wildlife and green issues into the classroom.
Schools win awards for participating in green activities, which include tree planting, reducing carbon emissions and recycling. We have planted new trees in our school grounds, visited local woods, reduced waste by recycling (aided by receiving a new recycling bin from UDC) and composting, we also celebrated what trees do for us and the environment and on Safari, looked closely at different species of tree. Please see our display outside the school office for more information.
The Woodland Trust’s vision is to see a UK rich in native woods
and trees for people and wildlife. The charity is dedicated to creating new woodland with help from communities and schools, and protecting and restoring ancient woodland for future generations to cherish.
The Green Tree Schools Award is free for schools to take part in and we will continue working together to reach Platinum!
