Green Flag Award

Our school successfully achieved the first Keep Wales Tidy Eco-Schools Green Flag award after our Eco Councillors enjoyed showing Tim Wort (Keep Wales Tidy, Education Manager) all the children’s environmental work that has taken place in school, on the school grounds and in the local community.

RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch 2022

Our Eco Councilors enjoyed taking part in the RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch survey on 24th January 2022.

They then compared their results with the survey completed in 2021. The children were pleased to find we had more blackbirds, pied wagtails, carrion crows, jackdaws and robins than last year. They thought this was because we had been filling up the bird feeders in the Forest School area more often, which encouraged the birds to visit.

Were you able to take part in the RSPB Big Birdwatch this year? If so we would love to hear what type of birds visited your garden. Please feel free to Dojo your teacher or Mrs Buxton with your results.
