Sustainability and Environmental Stewardship

You may already have heard from your children that doing everything we can to tackle climate change is our big focus this year. All classes are starting the term with a topic relating to sustainability and environmental stewardship. As you will know, there is no time to waste; we need to act now as a school and as a wider community to encourage positive changes to lifestyles and behaviours. We have several projects lined up that we hope will not only improve the environment but will increase our involvement with the local community.   One of these is to establish some wildflower areas in the church yard, with the help of the local Horticultural Society.

Some of our key stage 2 pupils recently attended a Christian Aid event at Winchester Cathedral where they looked at how climate change is affecting the world’s poorest communities… and then had a chance to zoom around on the ice.

On 16th October, three pupils from Compton, accompanied by Ms Driver, attended Winchester’s first Plastic Free Schools conference. See below for more information about how to reduce waste at school, in the home and in the local community, including an online petition to reduce waste in school kitchens.
