Eco Committee

Our Eco Group are made up of children from Year 2 to Year 6 who take responsibility for spreading awareness within school and our local community on ways to help our environment.  From regular litter picks, food bank collections, pre-loved uniform sales, petitions for Meat Free Monday in school, energy saving reminders and recycling food waste to closely working with our Forest School team to maintain & develop the many native trees & fruit trees, willow tunnel, pond, vegetable patch, wildflower garden, bug, bird & bat houses/feeders and subsequent wildlife we are fortunate to now have frequently visit our school grounds.

In Summer we were awarded our Eco Schools Green Flag Award which involved the children spending months working towards our 3 topics – Biodiversity, Waste & School Grounds – which we provided evidence for in the form of environmental reviews, action plans, an Eco Code and lots of work ‘on the ground’. This is testament to the brilliant dedication of our pupils and Mrs Porteous who coordinates our Eco Group. We are proud to have good connections in our local community with important organisations such as Perry’s Pantry Foodbank and Refugee Aid.  We are also active members in The Old Moat & Withington Environmental Youth Group along with several other local schools who meet to discuss ways we can have a positive impact on climate change.
