An eco-friendly school is celebrating after being handed a top national award in recognition of its work.
Knowl Hill Primary School, in Bath Road, has received the Eco-Schools Green Flag award for its efforts to work towards sustainability and teach pupils about the importance of the environment.
Teaching assistant Michelle Kearney has been leading a drive to make the school more environmentally-friendly and a school 'eco council' and gardening club has been formed.
Lessons about the environment and waste have been worked into the curriculum, while children learn about the impact of global and local events.
Headteacher Pam O'Brien said: "Mrs Kearney has led the eco award drive from the start. The pupils' contribution and enthusiasm has been great."
