Woodland School received the Eco Bronze Award in January 2019
The school has established an Eco Committee which includes the ‘Eco Warrior’ a group of pupils who are involved in many Eco activities such as recycling and reducing waste within school.
Woodland school achieved the Eco Schools Bronze Award in January and we are well on our way in achieving the Silver Award through our different Eco projects taking place in and around school.
The school is involved in many Eco activities such as recycling food, paper/cardboard, plastic, clothes and reducing waste.
Kitchen staff are also involved by minimising the use of plastic sandwich wrappers.
The school has been involved in:
Switch Off Fortnight.
A whole school involvement in saving electricity. Switch Off Fortnight in November was a great success! The Eco Warriors kept a close eye on each class and areas of school making sure lights were switched off when the room/area was not in use, laptops and whiteboards were on standby when not in use and hopefully reducing the schools energy bill!!
Waste Week 2019
The Helping Hands Community Clear up.
All children had opportunity to help clear litter around the school grounds and within the local vicinity of the school.
The Eco warriors are collecting the fruit bins each week and putting the waste fruit into the recycling bin ready for collection from Refood, a company that recycles food waste and turns it into energy and compost.
Water butts have been installed in school and the rain water is used for baskets and planters.
The Eco Warriors also monitored food waste at lunch time and found out that Pizza, roast dinner and fish and chips were the most popular dishes with less waste! They found out that the waste food is also collected by Refood and recycled into energy
