Our 2015 Eco Team: Beth, Millie, Max and Dominic
Here at Croxton Kerrial, we are registered on the Eco Schools Programme and have already been awarded our Bronze Award.
We have an Eco Team of elected members from each year group who meet regularly address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity. In conjunction with the rest of the school and the wider community, it’s the pupils that decide the environmental themes they want to address and how they’re going to do it.
'Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
What’s more, by addressing environmental issues in school and reducing waste, they'll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.'
