Calder Vale C of E Primary School

Grow, Achieve, Explore

We live in a very beautiful area and want our pupils to learn to care for the world around them. As part of our curriculum we try to include elements of environmental work. This may be in our own organic school garden, caring for the school chickens or building the eco greenhouse! We make good use of our woodland both for play and for learning.

We try to recycle as much as possible by sorting our wastepaper into a separate bin, collecting batteries, stamps and ink cartridges. We try to donate to charity any unwanted items so that someone else can re use them.

Last year we also harvested our own willow to make wreaths and willow animals and create a willow dome.
