FREE school energy efficiency programme coming to Dorset
06 Jun
Ashden LESS CO2 – FREE energy efficiency programme for schools Schools in Dorset are being given the opportunity to participate in a nationally-recognised energy efficiency scheme. Ashden LESS CO2 is run by sustainable energy not-for-profit Ashden. It is free for schools to join and can lead to significant financial savings on energy costs. What’s involved If you sign up to the scheme, a representative from your school will attend four local workshops over the course of a year. The workshops will cover energy saving in your school building, how to engage with staff and students about energy, and how to make the link between sustainability and energy use and efficiency in teaching and learning. For LESS CO2 to start in Dorset, they need 10 to 15 local schools to take part. The next LESS CO2 intake is due to start in September 2018, and we really hope to form a cluster from schools in Dorset to start in September. Eight schools in Purbeck and Dorchester have already signed up, so your school’s participation could make all the difference. This programme has been highly recommended by other Local Authorities and school staff. Dorset County Council supports this scheme and if you choose to take part, will assist you by providing user-friendly data regarding your school’s energy use (where possible), along with other practical resources. Further information For further information about LESS CO2, how it works, and how to get the most out of the programme, please download the leaflet (see Downloads) or contact Suzy Van den Eynde at Ashden on 0207 410 7059. Sign up To sign your school up, visit www.lessco2.org.uk. Solar panels For information about schemes providing free solar panels for schools, see this article link.

Music Census 201718
04 Jun
This year we have significantly reduced the data requested from schools and are hoping for 100% return to meet Arts Council England requirements. The funding we receive enables us to deliver a wide range of musical experiences for Dorset students including the highly successful whole class instrumental learning - Musicianship Programme. Please download the excel spreadsheet to enter your data into the yellow cells; all grey cells will self-populate. We advise that the data should take no more that 30 minutes to enter with all your school information on instrument lessons and ensembles in front of you. We thank you in advance for completing the data and hope that we can receive it by the 20th September 2018 to dorsetmusicservice@dorsetcc.gov.uk Please note the data requested refers to the academic year 2017/18.
