We’re thrilled that we’ve just been awarded a Green Flag award from Eco-Schools which is a recognition of some of the amazing work that our pupils have undertaken in making the school more environmentally friendly and raising eco awareness amongst fellow pupils.
Pupils at Central Walker Church of England Primary School first formed an Eco-Committee, then collaborated with Mrs Gibson to conduct an environmental review, assessing how eco-friendly their school is. They reviewed everything from biodiversity within their school grounds to how pupils and staff members travel to school. Building on their findings, pupils and Mrs Gibson then planned a year of action designed to advance their school’s green credentials, improve their local environment, and protect our planet.
The Eco-Committee connected their work to 3 Eco-Schools topics: Litter, Recycling and Global Citizenship. They then planned a variety of projects including regular litter picks to reduce the amount of litter on school grounds, implementing recycling across the school community and raising awareness of environmental charities through worship.
Eco Coordinator Mrs Gibson said, “Our Eco Warriors have worked so hard to ensure our action plan was carried out and we are thrilled to receive the award. They are all passionate about environmental issues and they are an absolute credit to our school and our community.”
Bobby-Joe, our year 2 Eco-Warrior, said, “I wanted to be part of the Committee because I thought I could be helpful in a way which would be beneficial, to be part of a team. I care
about the environment and I want to make the world a better place.”
We’re super proud of the hard work our pupils have shown and the way in which they’ve demonstrated the NEAT Academy Trust values of collaboration and responsibility.
