We have registered our school with the Eco-Schools programme!
What is it?
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
For nearly 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award.
What are we doing?
Mrs. Smith is leading us on our journey towards the Eco-Schools Green Flag award.
We have already set up our Eco-Committee, which is made up of two children from each class. Our Eco-Committee is responsible for ensuring that each class are playing their part in thinking about our environment. From making sure that lights in the classroom are switched off when not in use to emptying each Year group's compost buckets, our committee members have it covered!
As a school, we are also committed to reducing the number of single-use plastics that we get through. We have begun by swapping plastic straws to some new reusable plastic cups for when children are drinking their milk.

Our school has now achieved the Silver Award for all the children's hard work on Eco School.
Well Done Perton First!
