After careful consideration of Public Health England advice we have taken the decision to cancel visits to schools and visits to our Education Centre at Chelmsford. Our number one priority is the safety of those we work with, including school staff, children and their families.
As each Education team member may visit four or five schools in a week, we believe this is the right time to suspend our Education Programme.
We look forward to working with you in the future and will contact you as soon as our programme restarts.
Our education programme covers all Key Stages up to A level. A range of topics from water efficiency and pollution to climate change and sustainability are offered. Sessions are fun, interactive, with challenges and self-directed projects.
Our Community Education Team
Our Community Education Team comprises qualified, experienced teachers with current DBS checks and they’re happy to visit your school or if you’re near, visit us at our water recycling site in Chelmsford. All sessions are free.
Teacher Mildmay Junior School
“Fantastic! A thoroughly absorbing visit; very well organised and informative. The children were engaged and learnt so much - the perfect start to our water topic."
Come and visit our purpose-built education centre at Chelmsford water recycling site. Spend a day touring the site and taking part in fun interactive educational sessions.
We also offer interactive educational outreach sessions tailored for students from foundation to further education, run by our Community Education Team. Find out when we’re in your area.
Changes introduced in April 2017, means schools buy the water they use from licensed water retailers. For on-going advice and support about your water supply, schools should contact their retailer.
Our education service offers curriculum-linked sessions to support teachers and students in the areas we operate.
Our Community Education Team has developed a range of resources to aid your learning around water. These include teachers’ resources packs with activities, posters, games and more. Divided into primary and secondary, they’re designed to enrich your curriculum and Eco School status and are free to download.
These resources may also be useful for Cubs, Brownies and youth groups.
