Eco Schools

Eco School Awards
The 'Eco Schools' award is an international programme that helps us to achieve sustainability and tries to make safeguarding the environment a high priority in children’s lives. By following the Eco Schools programme we can address environmental issues at Wickhambrook Primary Academy.

The nine topics that the Eco Schools cover are:

Energy
Water
Biodiversity
School grounds
Healthy living
Transport
Litter
Waste
Global citizenship

In the Autumn term 2016 we elected our Eco Committee.  On the committee is one pupil representative from Robins, Skylarks and Owls, two pupil representatives from Kingfishers and Eagles.  The Eco committee is supported by Mrs Lowis and Mrs Wallis and by extra pupils who have joined Eco Club.

  

The Eco Committee conducted an Environmental Review of the school and decided upon an Action Plan to take the first steps towards gaining the first Eco Award.  You can read our Action Plan by clicking the link below:
