Our school has a gardening club run by Mrs Barley. We take great pride in our teaching the children to understand how plants grow and about our rural roots. We have several raised beds that we garden every year and also our own orchard, which produces apples, cherries and pears.
We also have a wildlife and pond area. The pond is a home to newts and because they are an endangered species we follow strict guidelines to ensure that our maintenance of the pond area encourages wildlife to our school grounds.
Our pupils are keen to take part in any initiative to improve our school and we have recently elected an Eco-Council. The new Eco-Council are in charge of raising awareness or the importance of recycling and any other environmental issues that they feel strongly about.
