Each class in the Infant School has two Eco-Warrior representatives who work together with Mrs Stainbank to support our Eco-School status. They meet a number of times a term to discuss ways in which we can make our school and encourage others to be more eco-friendly. They have also drawn up a set of rules, 'Our Eco Code' which all pupils and staff are encouraged to follow. This term they are looking at energy efficiency and ways in which we can improve this in our school.
We have worked hard to achieve our Bronze Eco-School status.
We are very pleased to announce that in December 2012 the Infant School was awarded the Eco-Schools Silver Award to recognise our achievement in working towards a sustainable lifestyle. The Eco Warriors will continue promoting ways in which we can make our school and local environment more eco friendly. Our focus will be on limiting the amount of waste we produce and looking at ways we can reuse or recycle any other waste.
Each class in the Junior School has two Eco-Warrior representatives who work together with Mrs Coleman to support our Eco-School status.
This year’s Eco Warriors would like to focus on the biodiversity of the school and are interested in encouraging and supporting a range of plants and wildlife within our grounds from insects and bugs to birds and hedgehogs.
They will also be looking at energy efficiency and ways in which we can improve this in our school with Switch Off Fortnight which will promote the conservation of electricity.
The Eco Warriors will be promoting the 6 Rs over the festive period ‘Reduce, Rethink, Refuse, Recycle, Reuse, Repair’. Watch this space for top tips to help you consider the environment whilst celebrating!
The Eco Warriors will share responsibility for educating the children in our school on global issues such as climate change and taking part in World Food Day to raise awareness of the amount of food we waste and try to decrease this.
Our exciting ‘Only One You’ garden project will be supported by the Eco Warriors who will be helping to plant and maintain our garden grounds and ensure effective and thoughtful use of all our outdoor areas.
In 2014 the Junior School achieved Silver Eco-School status. This year our action plan will ensure we work towards upholding and improving on this award.
Please take a look at our Eco Warrior action plan which details the objectives and activities for the year ahead and if you feel you could help or offer support in relation to any of the activities in any way we would love to hear from you!
