Eco Schools

Our Aims

As an Eco School, we have 2 key aims:

 – Educate the children about the impact of our actions on the environment so that they can make positive decisions now and in the future

 – Empower them to know that they can make a difference and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world through influencing the actions of others as well as what they do themselves

We are a registered member of Eco Schools which is a global network of thousands of like-minded schools. Last year, we achieved the Bronze Award as recognition of our actions as a school.

Our Eco Committee

Our activities are shaped by our Eco Schools Committee. This is a group of children drawn from each year group at Burton Green who come together to discuss eco issues and how our school can play a part. 

We decided that our focus topics for this year are:

 – Waste
 – Energy
 – Water

Find out more by taking a look at our Action Plan and the minutes of our last meeting.

Some activities that we have organised include:

 – Taking part in Switch Off Fortnight to raise awareness about wasting energy
 – A class competition to make something using recycled materials 
 – Implementing changes within our school to reduce food waste and encourage composting.

Fox Cubs have been learning about the importance of keeping our oceans clean through our book of the week Somebody Swallowed Stanley. We have rescued some sea creatures and learnt about recycling plastics. 🐢 🐠 🐋 🦑 #BGEcoSchool #BGEYFS

We had a fantastic virtual assembly today from our Eco School Committee introducing the #bigbatteryhunt which we are so excited to be taking part in! They knew so much about batteries and why they should be recycled. #BGEcoSchool
