Welcome to our Eco- Page!
Colliers Green is an 'eco- school'. This means that we look after our school and local area in addition to doing what we can to care for the whole world environment. We have held the prestigious Green Flag Award,symbolising ‘excellence in the field of environmental activity’, over many years and although we will not be renewing this accreditation (as we are embarking on new exciting projects) we continue to maintain our ethos as an eco- school.

Wild and Green Club
We have an enthusiastic group of children from Key Stage 2 who meet together to take part in a variety of outside activities. These children are responsible for much of the gardening work that takes place in our school grounds but they also enjoy exploring our local countryside, pond dipping, and cooking with ingredients we find when out and about.
This autumn they have harvested apples from the school orchard.
These apples are being sold to help support our gardening work in school.
We hope you will all buy some!
Two members of staff have been trained to lead outdoor sessions with our children in a local woodland. The children have the opportunity to learn about the natural environment, how to handle risks and to use their own initiative to solve problems and co-operate with others. Visit our 'Forest School' page in the 'About Us' section to discover what the children have been up to recently.
