Since 2010 Cotham Gardens Primary has been committed to becoming an Eco School. It has now achieved the status of Eco School for three years in a row making it one of the greenest schools in town!
This means that ‘green standards’ have been achieved in subject areas as diverse as ‘Healthy Living’ and ‘Litter’, ‘Biodiversity’, ‘Transport, ’Energy’ and ‘School Grounds’. This also means that all the children are actively involved in implementing the school green ethos.
Cotham Gardens Primary has a very active School Council made up of children from all year groups who meet regularly to discuss all aspects of the school.
Our children continue the good work of:
Reporting leaking taps
Taking care of our school grounds by picking litter
Patrolling the school’s classrooms every day to make sure all lights are switched off when not in use
Listening to visiting experts who taught them about the importance caring for our environment in order to preserve our wildlife.
