We are working towards the Green Flag Award throughout 2022-2023!
Our school staff and pupils care deeply about environmental issues and have a strong desire to actively protect our planet. However, environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss or plastic pollution are large global issues and the thought of tackling them can be intimidating.
The Eco-Schools programme is a simple environmental management system that empowers young people to introduce and lead environmental actions and education
in their school.
At Westmoor Primary School, we encourage all children to develop an awareness of environmental topics in the classroom that can impact our world. We have Eco-Warriors, from classes across the school, who make up our own Eco-Committee.
Our Eco-Warriors applied for their positions and through a democratic process were voted in by their class.
There are seven steps towards achieving the Green Flag Award. Our progress is displayed in the school hall for all the children and staff to see.
We will add the findings of our Environment Review, our Action Plan and the minutes of meetings to the display. Also, events will be listed and reported for all to see!
Why get involved?
When a child gets actively involved with Eco-Schools, they enhance their development further. They understand that they have a voice and that they have a safe platform to use it. They become minute makers, organisers, planners and influencers. Projects are inspired from their imagination, success is seen in a non-academic form, things get done and if they don’t there is the understanding, and sometimes frustration, of why it hasn’t been done.
Eco-Schools has the power to transform the pupils into forward-thinking, challenge-solving, decision-making adults of the future.
LEARNING TOGETHER THROUGH TRUTH, OPPORTUNITY AND CELEBRATION
