Wembury BioBlitz

BioBlitz Timetable

We will also be joined, at the beach, by a group of pupils from both Dunstone and Oreston, as part of our collaborative project within WeST. BBC Countryfile are also planning on filming part of the beach event, so please ensure you have returned your consent forms stating your preferences. We are sure it will be an amazing event, with so many in the community working together. 

As a school we are very mindful of how we can educate about and support environmental issues.  We regularly discuss some of these topics through assembly using our Oracy skills, and it is hoped that parents and carers will support this with the 'I wonder...' (Talk) homework and picture, that have started to come home on Tuesday. Our Plankton project, last term, where we linked up with our partner French school, and gave a presentation at Oceanopolis, in Brest, was very much based on how we affect the environment.

 

We know that a number of our pupils, and their parents, attended the climate protest in Plymouth. As a school we are very concerned about the issue of climate change and fully support pupils in acquiring knowledge and having meaningful discussions on this important subject. It is our role to educate pupils about such issues and how,what they do can impact upon this, negative actions and positive ones. However the law in relation to school attendance does not allow us to authorise absences for purposes such as pupil strikes or protests, even though there may be some degree of sympathy concerning the issue at stake.
