We've very pleased to celebrate that we have been awarded the Green Flag for being an Eco-School!

We're Going Green

The KS2 Gardening club have made such a big difference to our allotment area. They have done a great job at getting rid of all the weeds and have planted some herbs and are growing a variety of vegetables.

 

We now recycle batteries in school. The recycle bin in in the reception area at the front of school.

As part of the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign the whole school took part in the 'Big School Clean Up'. Armed with litter pickers and green bags we removed the litter and rubbish from the school grounds. The Eco Warriors supported each class with the litter pick. Nursery got involved too. Well done everyone, our school is litter free!

The children in Early Years helped put the posters around school. Jessica talked to the class about using the correct bins for the classroom waste. She decided to make some signs to go on the bins!

In Year 3 we talked about the impact plastic is having on our environment. We started to understand how

it is polluting the sea, endangering animals and ruining our planet. We made a video of what we think might

happen to our oceans in the future if we don't take action. We submitted our video into a digital media competition

and we are awaiting the results. In addition, we have completed a writing journey on plastic pollution, looking at the arguments for and against banning plastic.

Waste Week

 

In March we took part in the Eco School campaign 'Waste Week'. The Eco Warriors met to discuss food waste in both the classrooms and the school kitchen. We decided that we would weigh our food waste the week before 'Waste Week' and the after 'Waste Week'. The Eco Warriors then reported back to their class teachers and children what had ben discussed and how they could reduce plastic and fruit waste in the classroom.

During the week the whole school became involved in finding out more about landfill and where our waste goes and about how we can reduce plastic waste in our lunch boxes.

 

Early Years keep busy by regularly litter picking and are doing a great job at keeping their outdoor area and the school paths litter free. They work really hard together picking up the litter and putting in the green waste bags. They show great team work and determination. Great Little Green Thumbs!

Switch Off 2017

In November we took part in the 'Switch Off' campaign to raise awareness of making sure that lights and electrical devises were 'switched off' when not in use. The Eco Warriors undertook an audit to record lights and devises that were not being switched off when not being used. We have posters around school to remind everyone about our mission to reduce energy costs around school. 

Over the campaign we reduced our energy consumption by 4%. 

The Eco Warriors and the rest of the staff and children make sure that they 'switch off' their lights and devises and continue to save energy in school.

 

Well done Boundary!

Our most recent Energy Certificate saw us move from E to D rating! We are definitely moving in the right direction and our goal is to aim high for an A!

Boundary School Eco Code

Boundary School Eco Code 1

 Welcome to the Eco page of the website. We have been working hard this year to raise the profile and understanding of Eco issues with the help of the Eco Warriors.

They have been involved in organising and taking part in a number of campaigns with Mrs Shepherd (Schools Eco Leader) in conjunction with Eco Schools and the Pod. 

We have successfully raised all the staff's and pupil's awareness of the need to reduce Energy across the school, identifying ways of reducing food waste and organising a 'Keep Boundary Tidy' Litter pick as part of the Big School Clean Up campaign organised by 'Keep Britain Tidy.
