Care for Creation
Our children will learn that it is the responsiblity of humans to safeguard and value the environment and the planet we have been gifted. We learn to be responsible stewards of the Earth, acknowledging the interconnectedness of all living things. We encourage them to have a balanced and respectful relationship between humanity and the environment.
Many of our school trips support our curriclum and the need to care for creation. Conservation is a strong thread in science, geography and RHE, giving our children the clear message that we share this planet with countless flora and fauna!
litter-pick around our school
The children and their parents took part in a litter-pick exercise to ensure that our school surroundings are clean and free from rubbish. We keep a close eye on how our surrounding streets are maintained: John our site manager does a daily sweep around the school, picking up and discarding rubbish and we always ensure that the Local Authority are aware when there are larger items fly-tipped in the surrounding streets.
