This year sees our 'Green Team' aiming for our third Green Flag award making us one of only 5% of schools in the country to hold the accolade.
Our Eco-council work hard to promote the five R's of Eco: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse and Rot throughout the school and staff work hard to weave it through the curriculum.
We are proud of our outside areas and have had a bumper crop of veg and fruit from the poly-tunnel and allotment area this year. Our sensory garden is in the middle of a complete revamp with all year groups getting involved. Keep a look out for the changes and improvements through our social media pages.
Oakfield entered a competition to produce a recycling video as part of The Deal, recycling more and recycling right. We are delighted that we won the competition to encourage more people in the borough to recycle. The judges could not choose between our entry and another entry from a neighbouring school, so we both won and received the full amount of £1,000 to be spent on environmental improvements which is sponsored by FCC, who look after the borough’s recycling centres.
