Whitehouse Common is an Eco School. We follow the Eco Schools’ programme to give our pupils a wider understanding of the world and the environment we all share. Eco Schools is an international organisation operating in over 50 countries, encouraging and educating children to be environmentally aware. In the UK, Eco Schools is overseen by the Keep Britain Tidy organisation.

There are nine topics that form the structure of the programme: Energy; Litter; Water; Waste; Healthy Living; School Grounds; Transport; Biodiversity; Global Perspective.

We have been following the Eco Schools programme since 2009, gaining our Bronze and Silver award, culminating in being awarded Green Flag Status in 2012. In July 2014 we successfully renewed our Green Flag Award. The school continues to develop its Eco work, spearheaded by the Eco Team. We hope you find our page interesting.

 

Bike MOT Success

Whitehouse Common children delighted Rachel Vann, Bike Officer for Sustrans, with their overwhelming response to her invitation to carry out bike MOT’s  this week. Children brought in over 100 bikes for Rachel to check in readiness for the step in becoming a Bike It North school.

Battery Recycling

We are now recycling batteries in the Acorns. Our Eco Team members from KS1 are here with Mr Horne showing the battery recycling boxes that are going in to each classroom. KS2 will join this scheme next week. So please send any used batteries with your child into KS1 for the Eco team to recycle. battery-recycling
