Eco team

Welcome to our Eco Team page.

  • Arabella
  • Maeve
  • Toby
  • Joshua
  • Saski
  • Kieran
  • Amber
  • Ben
  • Johnny
  • Catherine
  • Edward

These are assisted by the Eco Cadets who are: 

  • Jack
  • Ollie
  • Jack
  • Molly
  • Bea
  • Freya

We also have Mrs Fairyn, Mrs Watson and Mrs Addison to help keep us on track!

We meet every week to try to plan ways of making our school environment a more eco-friendly place. We think about the 9 eco themes which are energy, water, biodiversity, school grounds, healthy living, transport, litter, waste and global citizenship. 

These are some of the things we do every week:

  • Litter picking
  • Turn off lights and close doors to save energy
  • Switch off computers
  • Water the plants
  • Fill bird baths
  • Gardening

We also run awareness campaigns such as the RSPB Birdwatch and energy saving campaigns. We show the rest of the school our activities on our display board and by sometimes leading assemblies. 

Last year we participated in Energy Awareness week, promoted the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch, the Clean for the Queen campaign and we grew fruit and vegetables which we sold at the schools summer fair. 

We are hoping to achieve the Bronze Eco Schools Award soon in recognition of all the wonderful work we do from week to week.
