EoN helps improve the lighting in our Reception and Nursery classrooms


Oldcastle Primary School creates brighter more efficient classrooms

Pupils at Oldcastle Primary School are benefiting from energy efficient lighting in their classrooms thanks to a £2,000 grant from E.ON’s Energising Communities Fund.


The funding from E.ON has been used to upgrade the light fittings in some areas of the school as part of its ‘Nursery and Reception Lighting for Wellbeing’ project, set up to continue the school’s efforts to transform its lighting to be brighter and more energy efficient.


Now the project has been completed, the school hopes that the new lighting will reduce its electricity consumption and have a positive impact on the pupils’ learning and well-being. We’re very thankful for E.ON’s grant to fund the upgrade of our nursery and reception lighting which will help us to achieve our aim of providing a safe, well-lit and energy efficient environment for our children.  The lighting will not only help cut our electricity consumption and costs but research has shown that improved lighting has the ability to have a positive effect on mental and physical health, social activities and learning performance.


The school aim to replace lighting in many other areas over the coming year in its aim to create brighter and more energy efficient classroom and ancillary spaces.
