We are starting a new club called Eco Warriors on Tuesday’s after school in which all children will be given the opportunity to be part of our Eco work in school. This is instead of having 1 child per class as an Eco representative therefore giving more children the opportunity to be part of our work.
Each year group will have half a term each and we will be working towards our Silver Eco award.
Top Tips - Energy
Is the whiteboard switched off when it is not in use?
Are the monitors on the laptops in your class switched off?
Are the lights switched off when they are not in use?
Our mission is to help make our school sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
What’s more, by addressing environmental issues in school and reducing waste, they'll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.
The role of the Eco-Committee
The Eco-Committee is tasked to:
Ensure that the whole school is aware of the Eco-Schools programme
Take the lead in carrying out the Environmental Review
Ensure that everyone in the school community is represented in the decision-making process (as far as possible)
Provide a link between pupils, teachers, senior management team, governors and the whole school community
Take the lead in delivering the Eco-Schools Action Plan
Eco Class of the Week
We will be continuing to monitor our Eco class of the week. This will be awarded for the class who has been the most energy efficient (turning off lights, white board and computers)

Within a month of starting our Eco - committee, we have achieved our Bronze award and we are well on our way to achieving our Silver!!
We had a visit from BWD refuse department to talk to the whole school about recycling and how it can make a difference to our world. The children were very interested especially when he showed them his recycled material jacket!
