Caring for God's creation
To take advantage of our unique setting, and as part of our role of fulfilling the Church of England’s fifth mark of mission, we have developed a strong emphasis on outdoor learning including Forest School.
Our Forest School Curriculum provides children with first-hand experience of God’s creation. To support them in becoming good stewards of the earth, we provide children with the opportunity to get up close to nature to help them appreciate the awe and wonder of the natural world. We believe that you need to love the earth first to appreciate the importance of safeguarding the plant for future generations.
We provide many opportunities for our children to be involved in ecology- based events, enabling them to make connections between environmental justice and human social justice.
We are working towards achieving Green Flag status for the school within the globally recognised Eco-Schools Programme. Our Guardians of the Planet Group and wider school initiatives offer the children the chance to have a direct impact on how the school operates in areas such as waste disposal, food provision and energy usage, whilst highlighting the changes they can make in their own lives to help protect our plant. It also provides them with the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in areas such as leadership and communication.
