Climate Action Week

Well done to everyone. Climate change is a concern for everyone and all we can do is try to do the small things to make a difference. During Climate Action Week the pupils walked to school making the choice to stay out of their cars. We hope that you will consider this going forward so that each week we are getting more and more pupils choosing to walk, cycle or scooter to school. We had  bare food lunch week. Pupils brought beakers and did not use clingfilm or tinfoil in their lunch boxes. This was a great success and again we hope that pupils will choose to avoid plastic as much as possible.
