Our Eco Warriors is made up of 10 children from Year 1 through to Year 6. The children were asked to complete an application form and were then selected by school staff. It is an opportunity for the children to get involved in helping Stanton Primary School to be more environmentally friendly. Our Eco Warrior representatives develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is their responsibility to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of the pupils they represent (their class peers).
Well done to the elected members of our Eco Council:
What Do We Do?
Members of the Eco Warriors take part in discussions and votes and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or to take class votes relating to discussions we have in Eco Warrior meetings. Members meet once a half-term with Mrs Bunniss and Miss Zahra to discuss their ideas and to work through the Eco Council programme. Follow the link below for more information on the Eco Council Programme.

This year’s Eco Warriors will be working through the seven steps to Green Flag success. Now that we have elected our Eco Warriors our next step is to complete an Environmental Review to help us assess what our School's priorities should be.
Meeting 1: Thursday 11th November 2021
In our first meeting we conducted an Environmental Review on our school and its grounds. This involved our Eco Warriors talking to staff in the kitchen and around school as well as talking to each other to find out what goes on in the different classes in school. Using the results of the review the children then picked 2 areas which they will be focusing on over the coming months. These were: litter and waste. The children will now be talking to members of their class for ideas on ways in which, as a school, we can improve in these 2 areas. We look forward to hearing all about their ideas at our next meeting in December.
Meeting 2 - Thursday 20th January 2022
During this meeting we planned out actions to help us improve litter at school. We planned to do a litter pick on Thursday 27th January, make poster to put up around school and create a rota for litter picking once a week.
Meeting 3 - Thursday 17th February 2022
During our meeting we created an action plan for Waste and looked through catalogues to create a list of the things we needed to order in order to be able to successfully complete our waste action plan.
Meeting 4 - Tuesday 24th May 2022
We created an action plan for Energy.
Meeting 5 - Wednesday 15th June 2022
We came up with a list of activities that staff can do on No Energy Day.
What Have We Been Up To?
On Thursday 27th January 2022 we did a litter pick around school. We tidied up our outdoor areas and talked about why we were doing it and the benefit it would have. We then created some posters to put up around school to remind our peers to put their litter in the bin. We will be putting these up next week. We also created a rota for us to litter pick once a week during lunchtimes to ensure that we keep on top of litter at school.
