A St Albans primary and nursery school has been awarded a Green Flag for its environmental work.
Camp School pupils are celebrating being one of 1,000 schools to be given a Eco-Schools Green Flag.
Headteacher Sharon Barton said: “The pupils are delighted. This is a real accolade which recognises a whole school initiative aiming to change children’s habits by saving energy and resources and protecting our planet.”
Members of the school’s Eco Committee, led by assistant head Ruth Rose, carried out an audit which showed fuel use was one of the areas needing to be tackled.
Their subsequent action plan means LED bulbs are now used and lights are being switched off whenever possible.
