Supporting local school children drive environmental improvements.
Arden Estate Partnerships (AEP) is pleased to be supporting Earlsdon Primary School to drive improvements in biodiversity and achieve their Eco-Schools award.
The school, which is within a 2-mile radius of the City of Coventry Health Centre and surrounded by 95% hard standing, has a three-point Eco-Action Plan to improve the learning around litter, waste and maximising the opportunities to increase the biodiversity of the area.
The £500 donation from AEP will go towards helping to improve the school’s biodiversity, building on the Eco-schools Action Plan 2021-22 Living Walls project, by continuing to establish the schools small garden and outside space with the installation of a sensory garden, bee houses, insect hotels and bat boxes as a part of the garden transformation.
The Eco-Schools Award is a perfect way to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the ecological achievements of young people. It demonstrates that their hard work is appreciated and provides them with the confidence and motivation to continue actively engaging with environmental issues now and throughout their lifetimes. Creating the next generation of innovative, inspirational environmentalists and tells local communities that a school, college, or nursery is forward-thinking and actively engaged in protecting our planet.
As well as making a huge difference to the grounds of the school, benefitting the children and teachers, the support from AEP aligns with the wider aims of the partnership, encouraging more biodiversity within the local communities and in turn, improving the lives, health and wellbeing of residents and patients.
