At Coppermill we take the Climate Emergency seriously and sustainability and a commitment to making our community a greener space is at the heart of everything we do at the school. In 2023, we became the first school in the borough to create a Sustainability Strategy and a Sustainability Action Plan (see both documents below).  These documents outline our vision and aims as well as the actions we will be taking as a school to ensure we are working together as community to fight climate change.

One of the major projects we have undertaken on our sustainability journey so far, was the revamping of our peace garden space. Working alongside Meristem, an ecologically minded design company, we transformed an existing space on our school site into a multi purpose growing space, complete with fruit trees, wildflower meadows, planters for fruit and vegetables and even a mural designed and painted by local graffiti artist Hixxy. The space was officially opened with a launch evening on World Wetlands Day and we're sure you'll agree it's looking fantastic. Our Eco Council and Gardening Club are busy putting work in to the final touches and beginning to plant new fruit and veg to be harvested throughout the year.
