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!
We believe that it is important for children to have regular, long-term access to a woodland or natural environment which provides them with inspirational and challenging outdoor learning opportunities, since this makes full use of our rural setting and contributes to the rich and varied curriculum we are proud to provide. We are fortunate to have a great partnership with Richard Adey, the owner of nearby Nether Woods, who very kindly allows us to use his wonderful site to go out and explore, have fun and learn. Forest School is led by Miss Hall, who holds a Level 3 Advanced Forest School Leader qualification.

Our strong commitment to both environmental and global work 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, thanks to our Eco leader, Miss Halsey, 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. Miss Halsey leads our ISA work. 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 are very proud of our recent invitation to a ceremony at British Council Headquarters in London, to mark our reaccreditation until 2020.
