Our Sustainable School

Clyst Heath are proud holders of the ‘Bronze Eco school’ award. We regularly take part in projects within the school, and with outside groups to support our wildlife and environmental work.

Tree planting at Clyst Heath with the Devon wildlife trust. With the help of the Wildlife trust we have an impressive array of tree’s planted in our school grounds! We have a hedgerow in our wildlife area that every child in the school helped to plant. In our foundation unit garden we have a range of established fruit trees, including plum, pear and apple. We also have a range of fruit trees outside all of our Key Stage one classrooms. Soon we hope to be able to enjoy eating Clyst Heath fruit together.
