Wessex Primary School has a long history of being eco-friendly. The eco-team strives to develop a school environment that demonstrates sustainable practices where children and parents are encouraged to live their daily lives in an eco-friendly way.
Each year our dedicated team is involved in various activities including:
- Litter picking throughout the school grounds
- Taking responsibility for conserving energy and our environment by checking that lights are turned off in classrooms and offices when they are not in use
- Reminding everyone to close doors to conserve heat once the cooler weather arrives
During eco-meetings, the team decides which national sustainability events Wessex should participate in and the focus for presentations in KS1 and KS2 assemblies. The team is proud of its achievements and is committed to encouraging pupils, parents and staff to be involved daily, weekly and annually in the sustainability program at Wessex Primary School.
