Ellowes Hall Sports College is a participant in the international programme ‘Eco Schools’
The latest reports from the IPCC (international panel for climate change) are unanimous. The IPCC is comprised of the world’s leading environmental scientists and meteorologists. They state that the world’s climate is changing and that an urgent response to this is required. Eco Schools is part of this international response and is now an integral part of planning for future school development.
The scheme is rooted in a genuine desire to help children become more environmentally ethical citizens by encouraging them to take responsibility for their own surroundings and reducing our impact, both as a school and as individuals on the planet.
We have recently worked with (and continue to do so) organisations such as the West Midlands Network Young People’s Climate Change Messages and The North Dudley Learning Partnership (NDLP).
Amongst many activities, Ellowes Hall Sports College continues to develop and expand its gardens, recycling capability and reduce energy consumption. Hedgerows are planned for the near future and visits to centres of excellence in sustainability such as the Centre for Alternative Technology in Wales are taking place as we go to press. Ellfest (as well as being a day focused on the arts and music) also seeks to highlight ethical and environmental issues and we hope to develop this as a much wider community based event over the forthcoming years.
The school is committed to the enhancement of sustainable transportation and has recently installed a new bike shed. We also give many students the opportunity to learn bike skills and safety as part of the P.E. curriculum.
We welcome any parental and community interest in any or all aspects of the ECO schools programme, so if you have expertise in any field of sustainable agriculture or other Environmental skills please contact the school reception or email firstname.lastname@example.org
"The school is a very harmonious community and this is largely because of the excellent relationships that exist between staff and students"|
