In the summer of 2020, Nields Academy won a grant from Learning through Landscapes, for resources to help us with our desire to become an eco-school. This included a free training session for staff members and a number of wonderful resources, which helped to create Nields Garden.  Included in our bundles of resources that we won were: Lots of bug related items, a large pollination bug house, mini bug & butterfly houses, identification kits, and resources for building further bug houses.       

The success of our recycling schemes and wormery project have shown that the pupils, staff and local community are very supportive of us trying to become a greener school. 

Our amazing Nields Garden has been a great asset to the whole school. Pupils love spending time in our outdoor classroom, wandering around the garden, going on bug hunts as well as planting seeds and bulbs, growing fruit and vegetables and watching as plants grow. They have all been learning about nature with our weekly Wildlife Wednesdays with Mrs Hill.

You can find out more about the Eco Schools programme through their website.
