Academic Year 2022-2023 Eco-Warriors 

An Eco-Warrior is an individual who cares about our environment and the diversity of life forms that share it. Being an Eco-Warrior is to simply care for our environment in our daily activities and decision making.


Our team of school Eco-Warriors will be working with Mrs Gates  to develop our Mystical Garden, Forest Schools program, and help our school to look after the environment. We are very excited to be working towards the Gold Woodlands trust green tree award. Last

Our first harvest 

We are so excited! We finally have our first produce from our community garden. We have harvested potatoes and radishes. Children in Deer and Badger have taken little pots home to either share with their families, friends or neighbours. We can’t wait for our next items to be ready.

Eco council met today to continue work on our community vegetable garden. We spent this morning thinning out our tomato seeds and transplanting them over to their own pots. Fingers crossed that we will have some different varieties of tomatoes to harvest late summer. 

Wednesday 8th February 2023

Eco council would like to say a huge thank you to the lovely people from our local community and beyond who have donated: tools, seeds, grow tunnels, seed trays, mini greenhouses, plant pots and vegetable beds to help get our community flower and vegetable garden started. We are so grateful and look forward to using them over the next few weeks and for future gardening projects. THANK YOU! 

Thursday 26th and Thursday 2nd January 

Eco council met today to start preparations for the school community garden that they want to set up in the mystical garden. The children spent this morning clearing the vegetable beds and adding the new ones that were kindly donated by Mr and Mrs Beck - thank you so much! We think they look great! The children can not wait to start planning what they will grow in them. Keep an eye out on the school  playgrounds over spring and summer where we hope to be able to pass on lots of lovely fresh produce. We also registered with the RHS campaign for school gardening challenge and with all the hard work the children have put in we have already achieved level one. Well done Eco council! 

Wednesday 23rd November

Eco council met today for a planning session. We worked in teams working on fundraising ideas and a project to open a school community vegetable garden. Both teams came up with some AMAZING ideas!  We can’t wait to get started. Watch this space for exciting updates.

Recycling in our school. 

Eco meeting 24th January 

Eco council are excited to be working towards making our school more eco friendly. We have joined the kids against plastic challenge and are hoping to inspire everyone at school to recycle their plastic so we can be a clever plastic school. 
our first challenge is to reduce the amount of milk bottles that we have in school and make sure that they go in recycling bins and not our general watse. In our first week we were able to recycle over half of the schools palstic bottles. We were so proud of our efforts. 

Update 7.03.2022 


Forest school have been inspired to go single use plastic free by our eco council members. We have started to use items that can be washed after use. Thank you to the "Big Red Kitchen" for supplying us some old plates and cups.
