Work Together - Play Together - Succeed Together

At Whitchurch Primary School, we believe it is important for pupils to take ownership of their learning and have greater roles in school decision-making. We provide many opportunities for children to play a role in making the decisions that affect them. We recognise that pupils have logical perspectives and opinions on issues that matter in the classroom, in the school and in the community. We give pupils an active role in influencing decisions about these issues as well as in the implementation of these decisions. We enabling pupils to participate as active young citizens.

What we do:

As Eco Council, we have given ourselves the following job description…

  • To carry out an environmental review to evaluate our school’s performance against the nine Eco topics and write an action plan for the year ahead.
  • Renew our Platinum Green flag by keeping our school environmentally friendly and a sustainable place.
  • Follow our Eco Code by promoting environmental awareness and understanding to pupils, staff and the wider community.
  • Share our Eco work by organising assemblies, hold an Eco stall during key events such as Fairtrade Fortnight/ Christmas Fair and collaborate together to organise fun school events and competitions.
  • Be reflective learners when monitoring and evaluating the impact of our Eco action.
  • Present our work to our Governing Body on a regular basis.
  • Evaluate our action plan at the end of the year and identify our strengths and areas to improve for the following year.

We've been awarded the Platinum Eco-schools award for the second time! Da iawn bawb!


We have been busy trying to tackle the problem of litter in our school grounds and in the community.

We bought new rubbish bins and recycling bins and we are litter picking. Our food waste is put into our compost bins and the compost is then used in our conservation area.

Say no to litter!
