The school is extremely pleased to announce we have been awarded the International Eco-Schools Award for continued excellence in improving environmental performance and learning.
The assessor commented that:
The children and staff are amazing and have the Eco-Schools Ethos woven into everything they do. The school grounds where extremely tidy with great use of all available wall space to display the children’s work.
The wind turbine has a meter attached and I was shown how much energy it had produced over the weekend. A great tool to get the children thinking about renewable energy and sustainability.
On top of this take a look at some of the wonderful things we do at Richard Avenue regarding environmental learning and see some photos of our amazing school grounds.

At Richard Avenue we pride ourselves on providing an education that promotes Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development which is the over-arching umbrella that encompasses personal development across the whole curriculum. Strong evidence shows that promoting SMSC in schools can contribute to raising academic standards and improves children’s life chances and prepares pupils for life in a modern world. Here at Richard Avenue, we are happy to say we have achieved the National GOLD SMSC quality mark . Well done everyone!
