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:
In the Autumn term 2019 we elected our first Eco Committee. On the committee is one pupil representative from Robins, Hedgehogs, Squirrels, Otters, Hares and Foxes. The Eco committee is supported by Miss Jolland and Mrs Wallis.
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 or our latest newsletter by clicking the links in the resources section.
As part of our Eco Schools programme we recycle all types of pens and ink cartridges, we are also a collection point for used batteries, crisp and biscuit wrappers. Please support us in these projects by dropping in any of these items into the school office.
