Eco Warriors

We currently hold the Silver Award and
our next step is to achieve the Green Flag Award.

What exactly is an Eco School?

This means that we are working towards becoming a sustainable school. Therefore, we are always thinking about our actions and our impact on the environment. We have a team of committed and hard-working Eco Warriors made up of representatives from each class. We meet up on a regular basis to discuss eco-related issues such as litter and recycling.

We are in the process of developing our Eco School Code which can be remembered using the acronym BREW.

  • Biodiversity
  • Recycle
  • Energy
  • Waste

Cedar Class’s Maths group have been monitoring the school’s usage of electricity and found that on average we were using 200 Kwh in 24 hours. Mr Hoskins set a challenge to the class that they try and reduce the school’s usage by 25% everyday which is 50 Kwh less than before. The reward for this difficult challenge was ice-creams for all.

In celebration of World Soil Day,  Friday 5th December, our whole school began ‘The Badgemore Soil Project’.

We are hoping to find out which plants will grow the best in the different types of soil around our beautiful, forest school environment. If we grow happy and healthy plants we believe that our school will look better and hopefully we can start to grow some of our own fruit, vegetables and herbs.   We were...
