Callis Grange is an award winning Eco-School
Callis Grange has received The Green Flag award five times with the latest being in June 2019
The assessor commented: 'Evidence of Eco-schools can be seen in every area of Callis Grange Nursery and Infant School. It is clearly embedded in the life of the school and is second nature to these very young children who spoke with interest and understanding about the various topics. The enthusiasm of the lead teacher is to be commended. Well done to everyone and keep up the great work.'
The School Council has received the ‘Speaker’s School Council Award’ for all of the Eco-Work it has undertaken. See the award here:
Here is the School Council presentation to the rest of the school:
There are nine topics which are used for the Environmental Review and linking the programme into the curriculum.
The Eco-Schools topics are:
- Waste minimisation
- Healthy Living
- School grounds
- Global perspective
The Eco-School Action Team work together with the Healthy Schools Working Group and our School Council. Our Action Plan, which is monitored and evaluated and linked to the curriculum, involves the whole school and the wider community. We also have an Eco-Code to help everyone remember our commitment to being an Eco-School.
Callis Grange achieved the Eco-School “Green Flag” status in 2012, 2014 and again in 2016.
This prestigious award will be reassessed and hopefully re-accredited every 2 years.
