The executive headteacher of The Priory School, Spalding, puts its success in winning the 2015 Environmental Award down to green education being a natural part of its curriculum.

Daran Bland, after receiving the trophy at last year’s Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian Education Awards, said: “It’s taken a lot of time and effort from our staff to drive our environmental curriculum forward.

“We really value this aspect of our education provision as it’s helped pupils to work with their practical skills, put things back into the environment and make the curriculum as life-orientated as possible.”

This year, an individual, class, form or school that has made positive changes and improved the quality of life around them and their community will be named Environmental Award winners 2016 at South Holland Centre, Spalding, on November 10.

Moore Thompson Chartered Accountants, of Spalding, Market Deeping, Peterborough and Wisbech, is sponsoring the award and managing partner Mark Hildred said: “As a firm, we take great pride in our local area and our wonderful environment.

“We ourselves have undertaken a number of environmental projects, including litter picks near to our offices.
