We have a new Eco Team at Vauxhall Primary School. We are working towards the silver Eco-School award and hope to achieve Green Flag status next year.
These are some of the projects that we are involved in :-
Came into school to show us how important it is to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
They also helped a group of Year 5 children carry out a waste audit to see how much we recycle in school.
Recycle 2 School
We have teamed up with this organisation to recycle clothes/shoes and textiles.
This is another textile recycling scheme, they will situating a recycling bank at school near the entrance to the Children's Centre in the near future.
This is an initiative where we encourage children and staff to walk to school or use public transport instead of driving, each class has a chart where we monitor how we travel to school. Pupils are rewarded with a badge at the end of each month.
Switch it off Fortnight
We encourage pupils and staff to turn off lights and electrical items at school and at home.
We are lucky to have Solar Panels installed which are helping us to heat our school and be more energy efficient.
