Why maintain a specialism?

Current trends:

Resource depletion

fewer resources as time passes

Our challenge

Population increase

more people drawing on limited resources

Impact of climate change

regardless of whether this is human induced or not

These trends can be magnified by over-consumption and disconnection with nature

The ‘feel good’ balance

Negative impacts

Positive impacts

ethos

We can deal with these challenges by reducing our negative impacts (e.g. reducing our use of fossil fuels) and/or increasing our positive impacts (e.g. growing our own food) thus improving our quality of life

OFSTED: A good school with outstanding features

Overall effectiveness of the school………

During their time in the school the pupils make good progress in their learning and exceptional progress in their personal development. A contributing factor to this has been the outstanding work done to achieve ‘ECO’ school status and the excellent development of the school grounds to provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly outdoor classroom.

…they have developed an advanced understanding of how to stay healthy and safe, and of how by working together they can be more successful.
