Eco School Bronze Award
We are delighted to announce that in March, Langwith Bassett Primary School was awarded the Eco Schools Bronze Award.
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life.
The Eco-Schools programme is focused on nine key topics. These are:
- School grounds
- Healthy living
- Global citizenship
The award has been achieved thanks to the efforts of the School's Eco Committee. First, they carried out a School Environment Review, paying special attention to waste and recycling in school. Then, they formed an appropriate School Action Plan to tackle the issues raised in the review. Finally, the Plan was put into place.
Everyone in school has played their part in this achievement. Thanks to the hard work and effort in using the recycling bins in each classroom, our school no longer produces as much waste and instead we ensure that we are recycling more and more.
The Eco Committee's next aim is to push on in the hope that we can take our school to the Silver Award level.
