At Kingston Park we believe that Education for Sustainable Development is a necessary skill for everyday life and becoming a good citizen. In our rapidly changing world, Education for Sustainable Development should allow children to develop sustainable attitudes and values and make informed decisions about how their actions can affect the world locally, nationally and globally.
At Kingston Park Primary School, Education for Sustainable Development helps pupils make sense of their surroundings and the wider world. It provides opportunities for examining environmental themes and should promote positive attitudes towards our planet and its care. These positive attitudes are promoted through our Eco-Code which was developed with our school council.
Our Eco-Code states that in our aim to be a sustainable school:
At Kingston Park Primary School we have fantastic school grounds which are frequently used to teach Education for Sustainable Development. Not only do we encourage children to take responsibility for their school environment we also have links with local organisations to promote Education for Sustainable Development. Children take part in nature walks, work with a local care home and through our School Grounds Club are encouraged to take care of both the school grounds and their local environment. School Grounds Club activities include planting, composting, promoting wildlife and maintaining the school grounds.
