Tockwith Primary School has been awarded the Eco-schools Green Flag status for a third consecutive time.

It is one of only 15 schools in North Yorkshire which holds the status and there are only two others who have held the flag on three consecutive occasions.

“This is in main due to the hard work carried out by the schools Eco-Warrior team, who monitor nine key environmental aspects at the school,” said a school spokesman.

“They particularly focus on energy, litter, healthy living, water, transport, biodiversity, school grounds and global citizenship.

“The school has also held three Fairtrade sales a year over the past six years which has enabled the Eco-Warrior team to have the resources required to maintain the award over such a long period.”
