Eco-Schools Ambassador Award
Here at Christ Church C of E we pride ourselves on being an Eco Legacy Ambassador School, the highest honour awarded to schools, and one of only a handful in the country, for the last 4 years. We have held a Green Flag status for 15 years. As an Eco Ambassador School we understand the importance of empowering our pupils to know that they can help make the changes our world needs to be more sustainable. Eco-schools Ambassadors are leaders in extending the ethos of Eco-schools far beyond the school gates, interacting with the local community, nationally with the Eco-schools network, along with sharing knowledge, information and advice with other schools.
The pupils at Christ Church receive weekly lessons specifically dedicated to learning about Eco elements, from bio diversity to the importance of recycling.

Below are just a couple of the positive comments that we received:
"The school has in The Assessor’s view significantly further developed, improved and progressed since the last assessment and has as an excellent example of this clearly committed significant time and resources to developing an integrated framework (strategic management system) which sets out the vision, mission and values aligned to the key processes and activity the school needs to deliver, to achieve its desired outcomes."
"The approach taken is in line with recognised continuous improvement and business improvement techniques utilised in a number of high performing organisations outside of the education sector."
