Eco Heroes

Stepgates is aiming high!


Our newly formed Eco Schools Council aka 'Eco Heroes' are going for the Bronze Eco Schools Award this year and we are hoping to become a plastic free school!


We had our first meeting in November 2018 and have lots of ideas to improve our school's impact on our environment.


The Eco Schools Council agreed that we will focus on:


Improving our School Grounds with more bins, the addition of recycling & food waste bins, bug hotels, more green areas to encourage wildlife and lots more. 


Litter/Waste - to encourage the use of our new bins and more recycling, to reduce the amount of waste we produce that ends up in landfill, (to this end we have already stopped using individual cartons from Cool Milk and are now using 4 pint bottles that are easily recyclable), organise a recycle awareness week in school, encourage less food waste, ask the school kitchen to stop using cling film.


Marine - whole school art project, Spring river clean up, eco-bricks art project, increase awareness of the poor state of our rivers and oceans. Both Falcons Class and the School Office staff have adopted turtles through WWF. See the board in the office for more information and turtle facts.

The office have named their turtle 'Tara'! Adopt a Turtle
