Our 'Eco' School
Already our school has won the ‘Greenest School in Yorkshire’ accolade (as seen on TV!) alongside various prestigious awards, including The Kirklees Arthur Halliwell (Memorial) Sustainable Schools Award 2010, Eco Schools Green Flag in 2012, 2014 and retained in 2016. As well as the building’s celebrated energy-saving and environmentally friendly features, we have an active Eco Council made up of representative pupils and a thriving outdoor Learning Environment comprising a pond, growing areas (greenhouse, raised beds), wildflower meadow and woodland. Our school is committed to energy efficiency, waste reduction and recycling, to wit the Biomass boiler, rainwater-flush toilets, wind turbine and photovoltaic panels. We endeavour to spread the green message through the curriculum, through good practice (setting an example) and by involving the community in our crusade.
|We provide a stimulating, high tech and exciting learning environment that responds to each child’s needs and enables them to fulfill their potential. We offer an exciting curriculum designed to address their academic, spiritual, moral, cultural and social development and foster respect for one another and the environment. Our children are offered opportunities to work from first hand experiences.|
|We offer a broad, balanced and creative curriculum which covers all areas of experience, and one that develops knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes.|
