Litter

Litter Surveys of the field

 

We have done a survey of the sort of litter that is being left on the field.

This includes plastic bags and cling film, crisp packets and biscuit wrappers.

Assemblies to all year groups are encouraging students to reduce the wrapping they use for their lunches and use the bins.
