1. Litter & Waste
6. Global Citizenship -
CETNS has successfully completed the work on the first three themes of Litter and Waste, Energy and Water. We have been assessed on all the wonderful work we do for the environment and have been awarded three green flags to date. We have just begun working on the fourth theme: Travel. An initial survey has been carried out regarding journeys to and from school each day. (See our Green Flag noticeboard for details) Over the next two years, we will be aiming to reduce the number of cars coming to the school and encouraging everyone to walk, cycle, park and stride, carpool and lots more. Watch out for COW days. As well as helping the environment, by promoting sustainable transport modes (walking, cycling, car pooling or public transport), schools can improve pupils' safety, health and fitness. The journey to school is an ideal way for children to take part in regular physical activity, to interact with their peers, and to develop the road sense children need as pedestrians and cyclists. We look forward to working with our school community on the Travel theme, reducing the number of cars coming to the school every day, increasing the levels of exercise and fitness and helping the environment at the same time!
