FOURTH GREEN FLAG ACHIEVED!
A huge well done to the Eco Group for achieving their 4th Green Flag under the most challenging of journeys. The feedback we received was incredible. A special thank you goes to P3C/H and P5M for taking on the role of Eco Working Group at very short notice during the pandemic when class bubbles meant that we couldn’t operate the group as normal. You did everyone proud!
This flag is very special to us as it reminds us of the resilience, determination and positivity shown by everyone to ensure that the great work continued despite the barriers caused by COVID-19.
We are very proud to display our Green Flags in the Rotunda where everyone can see them

We Love Growing!
Before the summer break, every class planted potatoes outside their classroom doors. Mrs. Wraith, one of our PSAs, led the growing campaign with great results. You can see how each class did by viewing the slideshow below.
Our New Planter Designs
If you use the running track on Hazlehead Avenue, you will have spotted our new planter designs. If you don’t use the running track, why don’t you take the opportunity to go for a walk or a cycle to see these eyecatching planters. Well done to our very talented artists who have really brightened up the local community with their words and pictures. These planters have now been adopted by several of our families to maintain and they are already looking amazing, displaying a wide range of flowers and plants. A huge thank you to those who have volunteered to help.
