GREEN fingered students and staff at a Vale school were flying the flag after receiving a prestigious award.

Sedgeberrow CE First School retained their Green Flag School status after two years of hard work, which followed on from their first eco-award in May 2012.

Assessors visited the school on June 12 where they were shown the school garden, pond, waste recycling projects, electricity and water monitoring and the eco-boards in every classroom.

An assessor said: “It was a pleasure to visit Sedgeberrow First School and meet the eco-committee.

“I was so impressed with the enthusiasm, passion and knowledge these young people showed regarding their eco work. It

is so obvious how much it means to them.

“They are a credit to the school.”

There was yet more reason to celebrate for the first school as they received outstanding in all areas of their church inspection, which took place two days before their Green Flag visit.

Michele Humphreys, headteacher, said: “I couldn’t be more pleased.

“Sedgeberrow is such a happy school and we all work so well together, children, staff, parents and governors. I am really proud of my whole team.”
