Green School

The Government in England wants every school to be a sustainable school by 2020. The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) launched their Sustainable Schools Framework in 2006 when the Secretary of State for Education, the Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP set out challenging long-term aspirations for schools to mainstream learning about sustainable development issues and sustainable practices into everyday school life.

Park Mead has an Eco-Council which meets regularly to identify areas where we can reduce our carbon footprint.  We recycle all paper and plastic as well as composting waste in Roly Pigs.  More recently we have been able to grow our own produce and use it to supplement our school meals.
