This year, we have started our very own Eco Committee with a view to gaining our Eco Schools Green Flag Award. We are well on our way to achieving this after achieving our Bronze Award in December 2019 and are hoping to gain our Silver Award by Easter 2020.
We have thirteen members with at least two children from each year group from Year 1 - Year 6 taking part. We meet every Thursday lunch time in Mrs Shaw's office, following an agenda and recording the minutes of our meetings as we aim to raise awareness of Eco issues across our wider school community.
Ms Sarah Foden is our Eco Schools governor.
This year, our action plan is addressing the following areas:
1. Reducing energy usage - by turning off lights, monitors and other electrical equipment when we can and encouraging others to do so in their own homes.
2. Reducing waste - by reducing, reusing and recycling whenever we can.
3. Improving our outdoor environmental areas - by weeding, tidying, planning and planting to encourage wildlife to visit our school grounds and to learn about growing produce to eat.
Waste Week 2020: w/b 9th March
Our Eco Committee has begun planning for this special event. We are aiming to raise awareness of the importance of reducing our waste and reusing and recycling wherever we can.
