Our Environment

Our school is committed to reducing its carbon footprint. 

To help us with this, we continue to work to reduce our energy usage, improve our recycling efforts, encourage biodiversity when improving our school grounds and encourage healthy lifestyles.

Our Eco Codes show the things that are important to us.

Fernwood Primary and Nursery School have been awarded the RSPB Wild Challenge Gold Award for 'doing great things for nature!'

Did you know - Recycling 1 tonne of paper saves 17 trees.

We already recycle:

Paper, card, plastic, batteries, printer cartridges, pens, reading glasses and usable clothing.

Please bring your old batteries, pens, glasses and printer cartridges into school for recycling. Collection boxes can be found in the Year 1 corridor at the infant site and at various points at the junior site.

We have Phil the Bag collections twice a year - please save clean clothing, paired shoes, handbags, sheets, duvet covers,towels and curtains for these collections that raise money for green activities and opportunities in school.

Our compost heap is filling gradually and will soon be ready for use in our growing beds and allotment.

Classes can normally make use of old newspapers and packaging for box modelling. Please ask your class teacher if they are needed. 


Listen to our favourite recycling song!
