This year at the Willows we have started our journey to become an eco-school. This journey aims to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of the school. This should include the students, teachers, non-teaching staff and parents, as well as the local authority, the media and local businesses. Eco-Schools endeavours to extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible attitudes and commitment, both at home and in the wider community.
One child is chosen from each class in Key Stage1 and 2 to raise awareness of environmental issues and to explore ways in which the school can become more environmentally friendly.
We meet every Thursday afternoon, to look at ways to improve our school and discuss any ways we can make our school more eco-friendly, such as: turning lights off when the classrooms are not in use and monitoring any litter on our school yard.
We have allocated roles in school which include: emptying the recycling bins, turning off taps and lights and ensuring the computers are shut down.
