Sustainability is key on our agenda at Kirby and we are working hard to be a more sustainable school. We recycle paper and plastics in school.
We have a recycling box in our reception which is for any empty ink or toner cartridges to be placed in. These are then sent off for recycling and the PTA also receive a small commission for this too! This scheme is called Empties Please. See below for more information:-
We gave all children a box to fill with old batteries too - they will be collected from the school to ensure they are recycled in the correct way too.
Kitchen and catering
We ensure that we use a local company for our fruit and veg deliveries. We also ensure that single us plastic is minimal in the kitchen.
We have plenty of second hand school uniform in school so that it can be re-used and recycled. Please see the ladies in the office if you would like to see what we have available.
We still have lots more to do, but we have made a good start.
