At Windmill, we understand the importance of ensuring that children have a good understanding of our planet and the issues that are having an impact on the natural world. We aim to ensure that pupils appreciate the natural world and act responsibly towards the environment.
Our Environment Minister, Maria, will lead the Eco Council. She is also overseeing a special project this year: to source equipment for, and then lead, a gardening club for KS2 children.

The first task of the new academic year, is to ensure that everyone is following our Eco Code. The Eco Council has written this to help us be as environmentally friendly as possible.
