Sustainability in our Academies
Our academies have committed to developing climate action plans during the academic year 2023-2024 and have joined schools across the country in pledging their commitment to working towards carbon neutrality via ‘Let’s go zero’
“We’ve taken the 'Let’s Go Zero' pledge, declaring our aim to become zero carbon by 2030. We’re joining schools across the UK in this national campaign to show the overwhelming support for zero carbon schools, and inviting government and local councils to work with us to reach this goal.
We know that schools can also be the trailblazers for their community, responding to young people’s calls for action. In fact, they can inspire whole communities to tackle the climate crisis. In the coming pivotal ‘climate decade,’ we will be part of 'Let’s Go Zero’s' national network of schools and sustainability, sharing information about how to reach zero carbon, and working with local councils and government to make it happen.
We’re committing to cut carbon in a number of key areas. Here are some of the things we’ve already done / are planning to do:
By joining the 'Let’s Go Zero' campaign, we’re taking a positive step on a local level to help combat the climate issues we all face globally. It sends a strong message to our whole school and community that together we can safeguard our planet for future generations.
Sustainability leads have been appointed in each academy to work together with our staff and pupils to achieve our sustainability goals.
A curriculum focus group has been set up to work on integrating sustainability education into our values and ethos and making links throughout our curricula.
