"Pupils show keen awareness of ethical issues, for example in their participation in the eco-committee"
- ISI Inspection Report 2015
Our Eco-Committee is made up of staff and children who are passionate about making our school more sustainable and helping us become more aware of green issues. The children are the driving force behind the Committee which meets on a regular basis to discuss new ideas and plan activities aimed at increasing environmental awareness.
The Eco-Committee has introduced a number of initiatives ranging from posting signs reminding us to turn off lights and purchasing recycling bins specifically for plastic cups, to whole school events such as our Empty Classroom Day when we hold all lessons outdoors and enjoy the benefits of outdoor learning while saving energy.
Ashfold is registered with Eco-Schools, an international programme which aims to help schools make sustainability an integral part of school life.
Free from Litter
This term our focus is on being responsible about litter. This includes picking up litter left by others, ensuring that we don’t litter ourselves, using the right bins (recycling and non-recycling) and trying to reduce the amount we send to landfill.
