Eco School and Grow Your Own

Welcome to our Eco page where you find lots of information about how our school is working towards making sustainability an integral part of our school life.  We are hoping that good habits learned in school are followed through into homes and our community.

Here in school we have an eco council with representatives from each year group:


Higher Lane's Eco Code                                                                   

Here is our school's eco code:

  • We will turn off all electrical equipment when we are not using it.
  • We will take care of our resources.
  • We will help keep our school clean and tidy by putting litter in the bin.
  • We will use the 3 R's: reuse, reduce and recycle!
  • We will plant flowers, trees, fruits and vegetables.
  • We will look after wildlife.


Grow Your Own                                                    

Our PTA secured funding from an Awards for All bid from the National Lottery.  This bid kickstarted the grow your own initiative and enabled large planters, gardening equipment and tools, wood bodging workshops, seeds, fruit bushes, bulbs, willow weaving, the services of an expert gardener and much more to be purchased.  We are very grateful to the PTA and the National Lottery.
