To help us ensure our school is sustainable, we are an elected team who have been working hard as we strive towards obtaining the Eco-Schools Awards. Having already obtained the bronze and silver awards, you can find out more about our ongoing journey in the blog below.
The Eco Warriors Team:
Well, it’s official. All of the Warriors’ hard work has paid off. The Eco Team got together with Miss Glynn and Mrs Dineen and reviewed the application criteria for silver. After documenting and clearly explaining everything that they’ve been doing over the past few months as outlined on their action plan, they were able to go ahead and click ‘submit’ on the online application, which was obviously approved! Well done to all of the team for their ongoing hard work.
Streatley were awarded Silver on 28th March 2019
It’s official: all of the hard work has finally paid off and we can proudly announce that we have been awarded bronze by the Eco-Schools board. The award comes after the Eco-Warriors used their meeting time to conduct an Environmental Survey of the school grounds which is broken down into ten areas: waste, water, energy, healthy living, marine, biodiversity, litter, school grounds, global diversity and transport.
Streatley were awarded Bronze on 18th October 2018
The school councillors conducted an environmental survey of the school grounds to decide which areas needed the most attention. We have reviewed their survey and identified the main areas were: water, energy and waste. At our next meeting, we will be putting together an action plan, which will help guide us to improving the school in just one of these areas initially.
We are hoping to apply for the Bronze Award during the Autumn Term once our action plan has been written. We will keep you updated – or take a look at our Eco wall in the hall!
