We are proud to announce that Oakway has achieved its Bronze award as the first step on our journey to becoming a fully-fledged Eco school! In order to achieve this, we: set up a committee of children to represent each class, carried out an environmental review of our school and drew up an action plan. We are focusing on reducing litter around the grounds and spreading awareness amongst staff and children about how to recycle and reuse our waste. We are also beginning to integrate environmental issues into our curriculum; so far Year 6 have studied energy as part of history and Year 4 have included the same topic in science. We look forward to seeing other Year groups learning about eco-topics as part of our curriculum throughout the year.
Why not have a chat with your child about how you can reduce, reuse and recycle at home!
