At Wainscott Primary School we strive to look after our environment and encourage everyone to be as eco-friendly as possible. Each year a new team of Eco Warriors will be selected from Years 2 to 6 who are supported by Mrs Butler. Each class elects representatives to be their Eco-Warriors. The Eco-Warriors have an active role in school. They raise our awareness about sustainability and encourage everyone to be good at recycling and saving energy. We encourage good habits for the future. Eco-Warrior representatives help the school make decisions and generate ideas for future planning, to increase the school's awareness of how we can be even more considerate of our world. This team meet regularly with Mrs Butler to discuss issues, raise awareness through assemblies and check that pupils and staff are contributing to our eco friendly school.

Eco Warriors will be saving energy by making sure they turn out lights not just in their own classroom, but also in rooms where people have left them on and ensuring interactive boards are switched off when not in use. They will also be monitoring recycling.
The Eco-Schools programme is focused on nine key topics. These are: Energy; Water ; Biodiversity; School grounds; Healthy living; Transport; Litter; Waste; Global citizenship
Eco committee sub groups:
Litter Police go on regular litter picks around the school grounds. They complete a litter survey once a month and feedback results to classes during assemblies. They design posters to put around school to encourage pupils not to drop litter.
Waste Watchers check recycling bins in classes and complete a monitoring sheet and in the near future will also collect waste from the kitchen, staffroom etc and this will be used in the school’s wormery.
Energy Inspectors check to see if pupils are switching off lights and computer monitors when not in use.
We are very excited to continue our involvement in the Bird Box Project. This year we have also got the addition of a bee hive. A big thank you to Mr Chillitupa and Mr Carolan who fitted our bee hive box and all the ICT equipment which will allow us to watch all the action inside the box with a fitted webcam!
