Stanford Infants is an Eco-School!
We have been recognised as an eco-school and are delighted that we have been awarded the prestigious Green Flag for the third time running – well done everyone!
The Eco-Schools Action Team consists of two members from each class, from each Year Group, including members of the staff team. The Eco-Warriors meet once a half term to discuss green issues arising in school and make suggestions or offer possible solutions to how their school can become more sustainable. Stanford Infant School is recognised for being a ‘green school’ and children learn about environmental issues throughout the curriculum.
At Stanford Infants we are always very busy undertaking different activities and events that help towards looking after our planet.
The Big Tidy Up
This involves children (and staff) helping to pick up blown about litter and leaves in the playground and around the front entrance. If you would like to find out more information about this event visit www.thebigtidyup.org
Brighton and Hove Environmental Education (BHee) are developing resources that they hope will be useful to schools when things do return to ‘normal’.
Connecting with local nature has been proven to be beneficial to our physical and mental wellbeing. It’s also a great way to learn all areas of the curriculum.
BHee wants to support schools and families to enjoy learning outside during the school closure, whilst still following the government advice on social distancing and self isolation.
They have created a resource bank of ‘Curriculum Ideas for Outdoor Home Learning’ for KS1 & 2. Every week they will suggest one simple nature related activity for each curriculum area. No specialised resources or prior knowledge will be needed! We hope families will enjoy doing these activities in their gardens or on a walk as part of their daily exercise and schools may use with their key worker children. The first edition can be found here.
Eco-Schools have created resources for pupils to continue Eco-School work at home, with a different Eco-School topic being explored each week. More details here.
