Snitterfield School is a member of the Eco Schools project and have achieved Silver Award status.
We have an active committee with representatives from each year group who meet regularly.
Over the years we have introduced composting and recycling in each area of the school and schemes for recycling used printer cartridges and mobile phones. We also have a successful clothes bank which raises funds for the school and encourage the children and staff and families to use these facilities.
With the help & support of Snitterfield Actioning Climate Change (SACC) the school have their own solar photovoltaic panels producing energy and helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
Each year the Eco Group learn about environmental issues. These projects have included energy usage in school; ‘Help for Hedgehogs’, in conjunction with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and the national Schools Bird Watch, as part of the RSPB Big Bird Watch each spring.
We have also looked at mini beasts and caring for bees inviting local beekeepers Mike & Moira Osbourne into school to talk about beekeeping.
Our project for this year is looking at food miles and we are very excited to be involved with the RHS Rocket Science Project, growing seeds from space!
