Eco Committee

Who We Are

We are the mighty Eco Committee and our job is to help the planet by spreading awareness of environmental issues and doing our best to lead change.

If you are interested about being an Eco Warrior for next year, or just want to find out what we do, ask any member of the Eco Committee, Mr Easter or Ms Smith.

What We Do

As an Eco-School, we start the year by completing an Environmental Review of the school through different topics: Biodiversity, Marine, Energy, Litter, Water, Healthy Living, School Grounds, Global Citizenship, Transport and Waste. You can see our Environmental Review on our Eco-Board. This helps us to identify our strengths, and areas for development. We then decide which topics we will want to work on. After a discussion, we develop an action plan and decide on ways that we will monitor and evaluate the changes we make. Through the process we learn about planning, teamwork and how to inform and involves others.

Over the past couple of years, we have led several improvements to our school grounds. We now have a woodland, a pond and areas of rewilding. We have also brought in recycling bins for food waste, pens, oral care products, paper and batteries and provide opportunities to donate and collect pre-loved school uniform. Single-use plastics have been eliminated from snacks and school dinners, water-saving taps installed, energy-saving lights and litter picks for children to use at break times.

We take part in national campaigns like the Spring Clean, when we collect litter in Churchfields and Elmhurst Gardens, What’s Under Your Feet?, where we analysed the invertebrates living in our field, Waste Week, when we aim to monitor and reduce waste and deliver an assembly on waste and litter, and the RSPB Birdwatch. We often write a page for the school newsletter and post on social media to tell adults what we have been doing.

Make a Difference

  • Share ideas in weekly Eco-Commitee meetings.
  • Speak in school assemblies to promote our Eco Code: reduce, reuse, recycle, refuse and repair.
  • Monitoring of our Eco action plan.
  • Ensuring pens are recycled, lights are switched off when not in use and your peers are aware of other easy ways to help the environment.
  • Write newsletters and info for pupils and parents.
  • Litter Heroes – join litter picks and monitor littering in and outside of school.

I want to be in the Eco-Committee because I care about animals and I want to help the environment and pick up litter.  Also, this is because lots of animals are dying from litter. A fact about litter is more that, 1,000 pieces of pieces of litter is thrown into the sea in a year.  Also, I want to stop global warming and there is not much ice in the arctic so tides are rising and flooding cities and you don’t want that to happen to you.

Being in the Eco-Committee means I can help with carbon dioxide emissions which have grown inordinately over the last couple of years.  Due to this, I want to make a difference which will impact the environment in an overly positive way.  Furthermore, the activities we can do to stop climate change can help wildlife around us to increase instead of declining. Finally, one of the most important points that I would like to make is to walk instead of the oxymoron of driving which harms the planet

I want to be in the Eco-Committee because I want to save the environment from air pollution and make habitats for animals to live.

I’d love to be in the Eco-Committee because it’s important to me that we used less energy by walking or scooting or riding to school.  I love nature and animals and they sometimes come to eat the yummy food we leave out like nuts for the birds or flowers for the bees.  We need lots of water and sometimes people throw litter in sea but I don’t want that to happen.  That’s why I want to be in the Eco-Committee.
