Eco Rangers

Do you want to:

  • combat climate change?
  • support wildlife?
  • protect our rivers, seas and oceans?
  • improve our school and local community?
  • learn new skills?
  • make a difference?

If you answered yes, our  elected Eco Rangers will be in touch throughout the year to let you know how you can help out. 

Eco Committee Elections

Our Eco Ranger elections took place in September to help us choose our new representatives.  

The children voted and we now have 12 members from Year 1 to 6 who are passionate about protecting our planet, starting with our school environment. 

The committee are dedicated to ensuring that we earn our Eco Green Flag for the second time this year!

We have completed a review of our school environment and have three focus areas:

  • Transport
  • Global Citizenship
  • Marine

We are continuously coming up with new ideas.

These are some of the amazing actions we have taken in the past two years:

  • Eco Rangers can access litter picking equipment every lunchtime.
  • Every child in the school took part in the Big Schools Birdwatch in February to help us monitor the birdlife in our school grounds. Our junior Eco Rangers helped to lead an assembly to introduce the event to the school.
  • All children were invited to Gardening Club each Friday lunchtime.
  • Year 1 to 6 spent half a term raising awareness of environmental issues around the school through our weekly poster club.
  • We celebrated Earth Day in 2024 with a visit from the author James Campbell, who ran sessions with every year group introducing his fantastic new book, Don't Panic, We Can Save The Planet.
  • Over 100 children took part in our competition in 2024 to create a piece of Earth Art, using recyclable materials.
  • All children were encouraged to celebrate Walk to School Week in June by observing amazing things they would only see if they walked, cycled or scooted.
