Planet Protectors

This year we have the new name of Planet Protectors! We continue to work hard to improve our school environment. Mrs Selby helps us to think of new ideas and projects, we share our ideas with the rest of the children in the school and aim to keep our school a Green Flag Award school. We also like to help the local community for example by organising a collection for Oldham Foodbank.

Congratulations to the Eco Council of 2019/20. We have again been awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag for all our hard work this year

Meet our Planet Protectors of 2020-2021

Our Achievements 2020-2021

We are thrilled to announce that despite the challenges that 2020 brought us, our school has again been awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag Award. This is given for all our hard work in 9 eco areas which include waste, litter, transport, water, energy, bio diversity, school grounds, marine and global perspectives. The councillors continued to have fun taking part in the RSPB Wild challenge and achieved the silver award this year. To gain this award they took part in a wide variety of challenges aimed at helping nature and experiencing nature. We made apple bird feeders, went on a plant safari, made homes for bugs and used art skills to look closer at natural objects. The Council were amazed by the support for the autumn food collection jointly organised by our School Council. We collected over 25 bags of food for Oldham Foodbank! As always the councillors also took part in the annual Switch Off Fortnight and Waste Week campaigns to promote saving energy and recycling.

Our Priorities for 2020-21

This year we want build on the healthy habits that we promoted last year.

  • We plan on continuing to get the whole school involved in initatitives through our work with the WE charity. Such as WE Hunger, collecting food for the local foodbank, WE Be Outdoors, to promote the health benefits of being outdoors and supporting WE Literacy with our book swaps.
  • We plan to continue our journey with the RSPB Wild Challenge, hopefully achieveing the gold award.
  • We plan to look further at the issue of waste, particularly the issue of plastic waste. Are we doing enough in school? Can we encourage every child in school to eat the daily provided fruit/veg snack?
  • We will of course continue our regular litter checks and saving energy checks.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our food collection for Oldham Foodbank. We had a fantastic response and Oldham Foodbank were thrilled; we collected even more than last year! Well done Planet Protectors and School Councillors for all their hard work helping to organise the collection.
