Eco & Garden

We were awarded the Green Flag in July 2015. For more details see Eco Schools England

 We also have a Green Procurement Policy for school.

Eco Team

Our Eco Team meets at lunchtime and discusses ways that we can save energy and reduce our rubbish. We hold meetings for the Eco Council at 12.40 in class 3, one Friday every half term.

Green Day 2016

 

No paper or smartboards were used because scooters, mud, orienteering and gardening were all on the timetable instead! There were eight actives in all, and each mixed aged group did four of them.

The Alban Way Project

The Eco Team at Ss Alban and Stephen Infant School have written to St Albans City and District Council to ask for permission to develop a small area of the Alban Way Footpath, between the Infant and Junior Schools. The Eco Team noticed that the area is quite overgrown, with lots of brambles. They suggested planting some trees and flowers there instead, that may attract more wildlife to the area, such as bees and butterflies. The Junior School staff and children are also keen to be involved in this project. We hope to apply for a grant from Tesco in order to fund the development of this area in April 2016.
