Langley Moor Primary School

Langley Moor Primary School

Langley Moor Primary is a single form entry, community school with 208 pupils located just outside of Durham City. For years, the school has taken pride in their status as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. The school has a Global Committee with two representatives from each year group 1 to 6. As the 2022-23 school year began, these students were looking for a new project to demonstrate to UNICEF their commitment to global citizenship. With the climate and energy crises increasingly in the news, they invited in an OASES educator who taught the group about the connections between energy consumption and the climate emergency.

Switch Off Campaign

Guided by their OASES officer, the Global Committee conducted a school energy audit to identify potential opportunities for energy conservation in their school. Armed with this information, they made posters to remind pupils and staff to turn off lights and equipment when not in use. They spoke with the school caretaker about ideas for reducing energy waste. Finally, they designed and delivered an assembly for the entire school and coached their peers through a Switch Off campaign schoolwide. The efforts of the Global Committee continue to bear fruit as the school reduces energy waste and maintains awareness of climate and energy issues in the school population. Impressed with their combination of understanding and practical work, the UNICEF assessor has awarded the school a Gold level Rights Respecting School Award. Congratulations Langley Moor Primary.
