Thank you FROGS for the brilliant artwork that has transformed the playground wall. We are very grateful to all the parents who came in to help to paint and supervise the children with this project. The results are great and a good time was had by everyone. Also, thank you for painting the playhouse, garden shed and the new mud kitchen. It all looks great. THANK YOU ALL.
Well done to all pupils and staff, Gladestry’s 3rd Platinum Renewal of the Eco Schools Green Flag has been successful. Here are some of the officer’s comments –
……………………. “What a joy it was for me to read all about what you have been doing and the fantastic work that you did linked to the RSPB birdwatch. I absolutely love how you always give 100% to your projects and fully research and explore what you are focussing on. It is really great that the target has led to more people bird watching and feeding the birds at home and I really hope that your results this year show an increase in bird species.
It would be interesting to know if the litter in Gladestry is increasing or decreasing (I remember that you found several years ago that litter in the layby attracted more litter in the layby). It is also great if you are getting the community more involved as well.
I have mentioned to a couple of schools recently that you would be an inspirational school for them to visit to help develop their own Eco-Schools programme so I am really pleased that you are keen to mentor other schools.” ………………………………….
The safety of our pupils is very important to us, including their safety when using the internet. Please see the following document for our e-safety rules.
