At Brundall Primary School, we are passionate about caring for our planet. We aim to develop an environmentally intelligent community.

Our amazing ‘Eco-Heroes’ aim to transform our school into an eco-conscious environment, where every child not only takes care of the school space, but also spreads their emphasis into the local community and beyond. They hold regular meetings with Mr. Parnham-Burn and Liz Wood and enjoy updating the rest of the school with useful eco-tips. Additionally, we are planning on introducing the ‘Green Award’ which will be presented to a class each week. This is for the class who has gone above and beyond following our eco-guidelines.

Brundall Primary School currently recycles paper, card and batteries, but we plan to expand this in the future! We also compost our fruit waste for use on our developing garden. Every week, the whole school makes a collective effort in improving our school grounds. Eager and enthusiastic volunteers come to assist the Eco-Heroes in making sure that all pupils (and staff!) follow the motto ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ and respect our school’s resources. Volunteer jobs also include checking the recycling bins are empty and clearing any rubbish using our new litter pickers!

The Green Team’s latest project is working towards an ‘Eco-School Green Flag’ application. They have identified the many environmental strengths at Brundall Primary School and are now working alongside the Environmental Leader to create an action plan for the school going forward. We are confident that there are plenty of exciting sustainable opportunities for the future.

Our vision going forward is to further develop the environmental thread through our curriculum. To do this, we have identified a ‘guardianship’ for each year group. Children will see this environmental strand in some of their lessons throughout the year and will think in a solution-focussed way about how to help the environment and overcome these environmental threats.

Below is each year group’s guardianship area:

Reception: Oceans/Endangered animals

Phase 1/2: Green transport and climate change 

Phase 3/4: Deforestation and waste/consumption 

Phase 5/6: Sustainable fashion and air quality
