We are a busy school! At Netherseal St Peter's, our rich and varied curriculum is enhanced by many trips, visits, special events and
extra-curricular opportunities. Take a look at the slideshow below for a flavour of just some of the things we get up to!
In addition, our school has a strong commitment to both environmental and global work, which is embedded within our curriculum and evidenced by the prestigious awards we are proud to hold...
The Eco-Schools Green Flag Award
This is operated globally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and nationally in England by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy. The programme provides a framework for learning and action around biodiversity, energy, litter, global citizenship, healthy living, school transport, waste and water. Although there are more than 17,000 schools registered for the programme, our school is one of only around 1000 to hold the coveted Green Flag. What is more, we have been accredited with this award no less than three times in a row, with the most recent reaccreditation until 2018 meaning we have now held our 'Gold-Standard' status since April 2012!

The International Schools Award (ISA)
Managed by the British Council, this globally-recognised award spotlights and celebrates how our school works with international partners, promotes positive, global attitudes, works toward curricular objectives and encourages an appreciation of diversity, other countries and cultures. We achieved full accreditation in 2014 in recognition of our curricular work on embedding the international learning which deepens children's understanding and respect for the world around them. Since then, our commitment to international work has continued so that we are now able to demonstrate its long-term impact and are also able to disseminate our approach more widely. Consequently, we hope to meet the criteria for reaccreditation later this year. Please click here for more information about ISA in our school.
