The Eco Team and Miss Bailey have worked really hard over the last few years and have completed lots of little ECO projects around school. Last year, children from Gayton Junior School were invited back to work with children from Ridgeway to complete a number of projects. The main project in 2018-19 was to create a Recycling Station that is now set up for families to recycle a number of materials such as plastic bottle tops, batteries and spectacles.
Look out for more details about ECO projects for 2019-20.
We are very proud to have been the Platinum Award (see below).
In 2016-17, the Eco Team worked together on an exciting year-long project. Together they created a wildflower meadow in a corner of our school field! Alongside one of our former Governors, Mr Cremin and our site manager Mr Morris, they planned to make a natural learning space with a huge selection of British wild flowers growing which will hopefully attract lots of animals and creatures in many years to come.
The team planted 1000s of wildflower seeds and bulbs which began to grow in the Spring time and we also planted 1000s more seeds in trays which they transferred to the meadow once they had grown a little.
