Eco Warrior - Earth is what we have in common!

Eco Warriors

EcO warriors aim is to educate and empower young people to make positive changes within school, to become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world. Each class has an ECO warrior and they have the responsibility of helping to look after the school environment. This may include; litter-picking around the school and encouraging their class to recycle. They also promote campaigns across the school, such as switching off interactive whiteboards and lights. We strive to teach all our children the importance of preserving both their local and global environment. The Eco-Warriors are children who have a love for the environment and have volunteered to help the staff and children at Stanford become more environmentally friendly. They play an active role helping the school become more eco-friendly and they come up with new ideas on how to promote sustainability at home as well as at school.

Meet our Eco Warriors

Their main responsibilities include:

We are currently in the process of applying for an Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation.

The Eco-Schools accreditation is a way to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the ecological achievements of our young people. It will demonstrate that their hard work is appreciated, and it provides them with the confidence and motivation needed to continue actively engaging with environmental issues throughout their lifetimes. Finally, it also tells local communities that Stanford Junior and Infant School is forward-thinking and promotes youth-led environmental education and action.

Our School Pledge

Earth Day/Great British Spring Clean 

To celebrate Earth Day year 3 participated in the Great British Spring Clean as part of an initiative ran by North East Lincolnshire Council. They very kindly let us borrow bag hoops and litter pickers. We walked around the perimeter of the field and playgrounds to collect as much litter as we could find. Taking part in the event linked to our PSHE topic of living in the wider community, our responsibilities and how we can look after our environment. A big thank you to Luke and Sadie for coming and supporting us with this event!

Community Beach Clean!

A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our beach clean yesterday morning. This was such a positive event with lots of amazing feedback about our work. Members of the public were very complimentary about the hard work we put into collecting any litter we found. A big thank you to Ken for letting us borrow the litter picking equipment. We can't wait to update you on our ECO award and our next steps.
"A brilliant job you are doing!"
"Amazing morning 10/10"
"As a grandparent it got me up"
"Brilliantly organised"
"Thank you for all the work you are doing"

Eco Warriors!

Our ECO group have recently discussed how we can recycle more in school. With us already having focused on recycling waste, they decided to focus on pre-loved jumpers and cardigans. This week they put their plan into action at the year 2 learning share. We hope to do this again at more upcoming events in school to promote recycling and sustainability.

Remember to bring 50p if you would like to purchase a pre-loved jumper or cardigan

Well done ECO warriors!

Community Litter pick ️

A huge thank you to all our volunteers, community members, staff, parents and pupils for coming along to our litter pick on Saturday morning! The community links are important to us and ensuring we keep our village clean and safe!

Eco- warriors ♻️

Here at Stanford we encourage eco-warriors around school. Children are encouraged to turn interactive whiteboards and lights off in classrooms when they aren't in use. We also make sure classrooms are recycling efficiently and generally promote an environmentally friendly school.

"Being an eco-warrior is helpful!"
