At Beoley we are dedicated to keeping our school environmentally friendly. We have held the Eco-school Green Flag award for 2 years and are in the process of reapplying for our status with our focus being on saving energy, biodiversity and growing.
The children are very enthusiastic and competent at growing our own fruit and vegetables. Our garden/outdoor classroom is also shared with the School House Nursery meaning the children have the opportunity to enjoy the growing experience from a very young age.
Wear something bright turn off the light.
The children wore bright clothes for the day to show our awareness of climate change and to encourage everyone to use less electricity.
Eco Green Flag.
After a lot of hard work by the Action team and the rest of the school we have achieved our second Green flag.
The children are very proud of themselves and took great pleasure in the raising of the new flag.
Eco Tip for November
A real nappy is a washable nappy that can be reused agai and again, saving you money and reducing the amount of waste you produce.
Also known as cloh nappies, washable nappies or reusable nappies should not be confused with 'biodegradable' nappies, which are disposable and end up in a landfill where they create greenhouse gasses.
Real nappies are available in a variety of styles and colours at a number of online sites and department stores. You can also purchase sample sizes to try before you commit.
