Walford Primary's Eco School Council
(Please see below for our recent news.)
At Walford, we created our Eco Code to help our whole School community understand the ways in which we can look after our environment.

The Eco-Council cares for our school environment. We help others to follow our eco-code such as putting litter in the bin, turning off taps and lights and not leaving the computers on stand by. We monitor our energy use in class and encourage teachers and children to recycle.
As an Eco Committee member, we go to meetings with Miss Jones, make suggestions and decisions, and get involved in projects that help our school become more eco friendly.
This year so far we have:
- Elected new members for our Eco-council.
- Eco Committee members have started their roles and responsibilities. Using their Eco Checklists, they have been litter picking, encouraging recycling, switching off lights, turning off taps, watering plants and making sure doors are closed to keep our classrooms warm.
- Held a Hedgehog Day involving lots of competitions and activities to help raise money for our Hedgehog Hogitat area and Forest School.
- Started to encourage the school to make healthier snack choices at play times.
