Eco at Aragon Vision Statement

At Aragon Primary School, we believe it is important for children to develop an awareness from a young age of the environmental issues that affect the world and are given the opportunity to make their own positive contribution towards the global and local environment in which they live.

 

To increase this awareness, we strive to teach children about the environment and teach children in the environment.  We create teaching opportunities about Eco issues across the Curriculum.  Key Eco initiatives are also led by the Green Team our elected class and staff eco-warriors, with pupils taking part in activities, projects or campaigns to help develop their understanding of these issues and most importantly to actively take part in concrete action towards making a positive change.

 

The key themes for our Eco initiatives are:

-reduction of waste

-improving our school grounds

-increasing awareness of healthy living

 

In addition to these initiatives, we seek to engage pupils through educational trips, workshops and assemblies with external specialists and by working in and alongside the local and wider community. We believe that learning about this stimulates curiosity, encourages creativity and helps pupils to develop a broad range of skills, competencies, knowledge and understanding which will support and prepare them for life in modern Britain.
