Woodland Trust Platinum Award
The Green Tree Schools Awards is an initiative set up by the Woodland Trust. The Woodland Trust’s vision is a UK rich in woods and trees, enjoyed by everyone. The charity is dedicated to creating new woodland with help from communities and schools, as well as protecting and restoring ancient woodland for future generations to cherish.
We are delighted to announce our school has been awarded a prestigious 'Platinum' award by the 'Woodland Trust' for getting involved in green activities including tree planting, visiting a local woodland, reducing carbon emissions and being a woodland ambassador. This award is so special, because every school taking part will benefit from a range of free opportunities, fresh ideas, imaginative projects and great resources; many developed with teachers and tested by children.
As a Platinum Award school we are one of the highest ranking schools in our area. There are almost 7000 schools registered to the Green Tree School awards and only a handful of schools have moved on to achieve Platinum status, making this a huge accomplishment for our school. Congratulations St Benedict's!
