Eco-Warriors 2021-22

Eco- School Green Flag Award

 

We have Eco -Warriors this year at Elfrida Primary school. These children work closely with the science lead- Ms Holland to promote a "Green school". 

We are working towards an Eco-Award-wish us luck!!

 

Please see our Action Plan (21-22) for the Eco Award below.

 

 

 

I would like to share some exciting news, this year our school has made the decision to work towards Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation (https://www.eco-schools.org.uk/)

 

There are multiple reasons we have decided to embark on the journey to Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Firstly, our planet (and all life on it) is already beginning to feel the catastrophic effects of climate change, plastic pollution, biodiversity loss and a myriad of other environmental challenges.

We want our pupils to be aware of the challenges our planet faces, and will continue to face throughout their lifetimes. We don’t want our pupils to avoid or shy-away from these challenges: we want to engage young people in conversations about them and we want to provide them with the skills needed to tackle these challenges directly.

 

Our hope is by doing this we will empower our pupils with the passion and skills to protect our planet now and throughout their lifetimes, including as they grow to become leaders, decision-makers and educators themselves. Alongside benefitting our planet, we also hope it will benefit our pupils - independent research has found that pupil participation in the Eco-Schools programme leads to: increased confidence, development of leadership skills, improved behaviour and greater motivation at school.

 

I hope you’re as excited about our Eco-Schools journey as everyone at school is - if you would like to find out more, or get involved, please feel free to contact me directly @  bodhi@kafed.org.uk. smiley
