We gave been awarded our 8th Green Flag Award. This award shows our commitment to learning for sustainability and is an international accreditation for excellence in sustainable education. The assessors were especially happy with our curriculum topics such as 'Who will care for the polar bear?', our garden scheme and the outdoor learning opportunities we offer. We are very proud of the children's attitudes towards sustainability and are pleased to have been recognised for all of their hard work. We are now going to get busy working towards our 9th flag!
We raised a fantastic £256.21 for the WWF and each year group will now be able to adopt an endangered animal for the whole year. There was a great atmosphere around school with children taking part in art lessons, persuasive writing, fact-finding and much more. Most importantly the children were shocked by the number of endangered animals and the children came away feeling inspired to do more for their world!
Edwalton are getting fierce for our world on Friday 7th June. In workplaces, schools and homes across the country, people will be wearing an item of animal-inspired clothing - raising money to help protect our incredible world through supporting the WWF's Wear it Wild 2019!
We want to see you wear it. Brave it. Rock it. Nail it. Boss it. Strut it. We want to see you work it. Because if you're going to save our world, we need to be fiercer, braver and louder than we've ever been.
All children can come dressed up as an animal, an endangered animal or in animal print for the day (with a suggested £1 donation per family, which we are hoping to use towards sponsoring/adopting endangered animals).
Below are the links to the WWF website showing the list of adoptable endangered animals and some information about Wear it Wild.
Some members of our Eco Team spoke to the Governing Body on 8th May about their Action Plan and how their decisions are helping the local and global environment. The governors enjoyed listening to all their ideas.

The school is very proud of the members of our Eco Team who showed the visitors around our grounds and school classrooms. The Assessor spoke highly of their passion, knowledge and commitment to our shared Sustanability Agenda. Many thanks must go to Mrs Davies, Mr McCahon and all the members of the Eco Team throughout the staff, parents and Governors who support this key value for our school. A fantastic unique achievement. Six Green Flags. Team Edwalton. Well done, everyone!
