The fabulous pupils Castle Batch Primary School Academy (CBPSA) in Weston-super-Mare, have won the prestigious international green eco-flag for their brilliant environmental work.
It follows their amazing work in making their school more environmentally friendly and raising eco-awareness in fellow pupils.
A staggering number of 48 pupils took up the challenge to make the school greener – and have been rewarded with the ultimate accolade.
Eco-Schools is an international education programme that prompts young people to explore sustainability and climate change and take action.
The winning pupils told Jill Dando News: “We love learning about the environment and how to look after the planet.
“We have to look after the earth, the animals and keep each other safe.”
Principal Sally Taylor said: “This is really incredible news. The pupils have excelled themselves with their enthusiasm and their practical help to save the planet.
“We will proudly display the green flag across our school.”
CBPSA was recently awarded a clean sweep of Good ratings by Ofsted.
It is part of The Priory Learning Trust.
The school impressed inspectors for its quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, leadership and management, and its early years provision.
Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “Pupils should be proud of their great work. They’re an inspiration and it makes us feel heartened and positive about the future of our planet.”
