We are an Eco-friendly school and we have a wonderful, passionate Eco committee of children and staff which we call our Eco Warriors. Each class each has two Eco Warriors who are responsible for turning lights and computers off and monitoring the recycling.
Every week we hold a meeting where we discuss any issues, complete environmental reviews and monitor and evaluate the systems which we currently use. The children lead the meeting and it is very much their Eco Committee.
We aim to promote environmental awareness in all year groups, here are two examples of work completed during school.
Work with the Wider Community
We have held coffee mornings for parents and carers to share the work which we are completing in school and to give tips on how to become more aware of how we can help at home.
Our super Litter Pickers, great work children!
At Merton Bank we also run a Gardening Club which is ran by experienced and passionate staff members, the children maintain the forest area, plant herbs and even grow vegetables!
Green Flag Award
After all our hard work and dedication, we achieved the Green Flag Award in July 2020 and our Eco Warriors continue to work hard to make Merton Bank a greener place!
