Live Simply


On 2nd October 2019, we were delighted to be the first school in Northampton Diocese to be awarded the Live Simply Award. We were inspired by Pope Francis' call for us all to undergo an ecological conversion to protect God's creation. 

In his encyclical letter, 'Laudato Si', Pope Francis invites us all to 'work with generosity and tenderness in protecting the world which God has entrusted to us'. Here at St Bernadette's,  we responded to that call by launching our LiveSimply action plan last year. Pupils have been learning how to live simply, live sustainably with creation and live in solidarity with people who live in poverty.

By clicking below, you can find articles summarising some of the actions we have taken so far.

We are continuously looking at further ways of responding to Pope Francis' call.

If you have any suggestions and would like to support us on this journey, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Our new plans for this year include:

  • Implementing a new wider curriculum focussing on our responsibility as citizens of the planet Earth.
  • Introduce a new recycling scheme, recycling packaging that is not recyclable via the normal waste collection services. We will reduce landfill, support the production of recycled plastic products and raise funds for Willen Hospice in the process!
  • Secure funding to construct allotments for pupils and our families - promoting positive physical and mental health, sustainability and healthy eating whilst supporting the science and maths curriculum.
