A Small School Trying to Make a Big Difference

Playing our part in protecting the environment

You will have seen the upsetting media coverage over the last year of the effects of climate change, plastic pollution, deforestation and animal extinctions.  At Norfolk House, we believe it’s important that as a community of pupils, parents and teachers, we do our best to play our part in reducing our environmental footprint by working together to tackle some of these issues.

As a result, we have put together a year-long plan of education and activity that we can all participate in. We will have a core focus each term and will be working with the children to think about how they can contribute in their daily lives, at home and at school. Miss Harman’s eco-warriors will help inspire and educate their peers on a daily basis, and will also lead assemblies to offer more information. We will also provide talks and workshops for parents and staff so we can all make sure we are modelling environmental stewardship.  

This term, our focus will be on reducing consumption of single-use plastics.  We will be sending out regular tips and ideas in these newsletters for you to use at home with your children, and we are aiming to reduce, if not remove, the single-use plastic bottles on the school premises.  

We know it’s not easy to ‘go green’ but with so much at stake, we know you will share our ambition to do our very best to play our part.  Thank you in advance for your help, support and ideas. 

Mrs Charman, Miss Harman and our amazing sustainability support leader - Mrs Parker
