The Green Team

Badgemore's own team for raising awareness of environmental issues


The Green Team are thrilled to announce that Badgemore has achieved and passed our targets for level 3. Well done and a big thank you, not only to the children who sent in posters and letters, but also to parents and carers who helped with the homework. We are now working on passing our level 4 targets. We are well on the way to becoming a Plastic Free School!

We have identified 3 single use plastics that we intend to eliminate from school:

  • cling film
  • single use plastic bottles 
  • single use plastic bags

Now we need your help!

Every Tuesday starting from 01/01/23 will be plastic free lunch day. On this day, if your child(ren) brings in a packed lunch, please try to avoid:

  • cling film
  • plastic sandwich bags 
  • single use plastic bottles

The Green Team will be monitoring lunch boxes on that day. Every child who brings in a lunch box with none of the 3 single use plastics, will earn a house point.

Alternatives you can use:

  • tin foil 
  • paper
  • compartmentalised lunch boxes with no waste
  • cloth, washable sandwich wrappers (video on how to make your own)
  • re-useable drink bottles

Please give it a go and join in!

So why are we doing this?

New Team Members

A warm welcome to this year's current Green Team. Thank you to all the children who put themselves forward. We are blown away with the number of children that welcome these positive changes to their school. 

Other news


The Green Team have also been busy labelling 3 bins in each class for:

  • food waste
  • recycling
  • general

We are trying very hard to encourage children to take care of resources and not create rubbish in the first place. 

Next Steps

In future we will be looking at other areas where we can reduce plastic and will be contacting politicians and businesses to persuade them to do more.
