Trinity Primary School
Nurturing Hearts and Minds
Welcome to the Trinity School Sustainability Page!
At Trinity, we are committed to creating a more sustainable future for our students and our community. We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in reducing our environmental impact.
One of the initiatives we are currently undertaking is our "Let'sGoZero" campaign. The campaign aims to reduce our school's carbon footprint by encouraging students and staff to make sustainable choices in their daily lives. Some of the ways we are working towards this goal include:
•Energy Conservation: We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our energy usage, including through the use of energy-efficient light bulbs and appliances, and by encouraging students and staff to turn off lights and electronics when not in use.
•Recycling and Waste Reduction: We have implemented a comprehensive recycling program and are working to reduce the amount of waste we generate through the use of reusable materials. We have also started to compost our food waste onsite which will be used to fill our vegetable planters.
•Sustainable Transportation: We encourage students and staff to use sustainable transportation options such as biking and walking to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.
•Green Spaces: We have dedicated a portion of our school grounds to creating green spaces, including gardens and outdoor classrooms, to provide students with the opportunity to learn about and engage with nature. In March 2023, we will be planting 420 trees to promote biodiversity.
•Community Outreach: We are working to raise awareness about sustainability issues within our community through events and activities and by collaborating with local organisations.
Sustainability across the curriculum
Sustainability is included in the Primary National Curriculum in the United Kingdom as a cross-curricular theme. This means that the concept of sustainability is integrated into various subjects, such as science, geography, and design and technology, rather than being taught as a standalone subject. For example, in science, pupils learn about the importance of renewable energy and the effects of pollution on the environment. In geography, they learn about the impact of human activity on the natural world and the importance of preserving natural resources. In design and technology, they learn about sustainable design and the use of recycled materials. Overall, the goal is to educate pupils about the importance of sustainability and how they can play a role in protecting the environment for future generations.
We understand that creating a more sustainable future is an ongoing process and we are committed to continuously improving our practices and educating our students about the importance of sustainability. We welcome feedback and suggestions from our community.
Thank you for your support in our efforts to create a more sustainable future.
