The Trust at the heart of the Batley community
With COP26 in full swing the young people in our family of schools have been discussing ways they can address climate change issues in both their home life and their school life. Our School Councils are busy developing their plans to further support protecting our planet for the next generation and beyond. Our young people have been looking at a variety of different actions they could take including recycling, reducing waste (paper, plastic, food etc), school transport and much more. Some of our young people have volunteered to work with Kirklees Council and their climate change group, and we are proud of our schools and all our young people for the proactive approach they are taking around this key issue. Our young people have shown great leadership here. Our Trust leaders are also looking at this matter. Our Headteachers and our Trustees are evaluating our energy efficiencies across our family of schools. Great things can happen when people work together. Our schools lie at the heart of our community and we all want to do whatever we can to build a better future for our children, our families and our community. As a great man once said “The time is always right, to do what is right”.
