Water And Waste

Our aim is to improve water and waste efficiency across the Foundation.

We will use water more sustainably, by changing behaviour, using developing technology and focusing on innovative practices.

We will promote responsible consumption, to reduce the amount of waste produced and work to increase reuse and recycling where the generation of waste cannot be prevented.

  • We have raised the profile of recycling through assemblies, posters and meetings of our pupil environment teams.
  • We have increased our day-to-day recycling by making containers much more visible, encouraging our communities to recycle.
  • We have reduced the reliance on printed documents by increasing the use of personally-owned computer devices through BYOD. This has helped us halve the photocopying page count over the last 12 months.
  • We ethically and securely recycle computer equipment so that it goes to a second user or a specialist recycler.
  • The parents' associations of all three schools offer second-hand uniform sales.
