Green Team

Green Team (led by Mrs Furniss) 

Mrs Furniss:

The Green Team will help to make our school, as the heart of Loughton’s community, a more environmentally friendly place to be. We will try to be as eco-friendly and sustainable as we can. We will meet regularly to discuss our ideas and then we will encourage all to put these ideas into practice. 



Meet our newly elected green team:

Autumn term update:

This year's Green Team have jumped on board with our crisp packet recycling and continued the momentum at the start of a new academic year.

Spring term update:

The focus for this term has been making, distributing and using bird feeders around the school to encourage more wildlife [photos coming soon]. Next term our plans are to fundraise for some larger food waste bins for our school playgrounds so that the food waste from fruit at playtimes can be recycled properly.

Summer term update:

[Coming soon!]



Autumn term update:

The Green Team promoted a flag competition in celebration of Her Majesty the Queen reigning for 70 years!

They also introduced class crisp packet recycling. Not many classes have got their boxes up and running yet but this is something to continue focusing on next term.

Spring term update:

Every class has now got their crisp packet recycling box so that any crisp packets from packed lunchboxes or even from home can be recycled  in the correct way instead of going into landfill.

Summer term update:

The Green Team have been very proactive this year. They have encouraged everyone to put their crisp packets into the collection box in each class so they can be fully recycled. They have done some litter picking around school. The children have produced posters that show what is important to them regarding environmental issues. We have had discussions about reducing, reusing and recycling. The children have started producing a short film where they have the opportunity to share their thoughts regarding the environment which will be shared with all the teachers to share with their class.
