ECO Action Team

We have a thriving Eco Action Team made up of children, parents and  teachers. School governors also regularly attend our meetings, so they are well informed and aware of the strong “eco” ethos within school.  Everyone in school gets involved in Eco events and fundraisers, and children understand the importance of eco matters.
The team meet every three weeks and they work hard to achieve high standards in all areas of our eco work. 

The new 2016/17 eco team will be elected next term and meetings will be held on Friday lunch times as required

We have been awarded the ECO-Schools award for the third successive time!


A recent article featured on the Northamptonshire County Council Waste and Energy Education website highlights our KS2 children's pioneering use of Systemlink in Science lessons.  Systemlink is an online energy database than can be accessed on the school laptops.  Not only has this real school energy data helped them understand more about handling and interpreting graphs and charts, hopefully it will also teach them be more careful with our school energy use!

Members present: all members were present at the meeting.

Roles and responsibilities: All Eco Team members are responsible for the following, but named children have special responsibility for each task.

Turning off lights, computers when not in use: Oscar, Charlotte –this is going well.

Making sure taps are off, water saving: Lottie, Finn – Oscar hasn’t seen any taps left on, but Charlotte has seen two and switched them off.

Topping up bird feeders and bird bath: Chantai and Charlotte, helped by Sophie and Jessica . – will replenish after the meeting.

Checking for litter in the playground: Oscar, Finn- no problems this week.

Fruit waste: all members for own classes – as planned. Gaelen reported that reminders were needed  about cleaning bins out regularly.

Meter readings – Gaelen and Chantai updated readings with Mrs Sallabanks before the meeting. There had been an increase in power used this month, this was probably due to the very cold weather but we need to take extra care.

It was decided that the eco team would talk about roles and responsibilities in assembly and remind children to be careful on 5 / 3 / 2015

Ofsted Statement

"Pupils speak with excitement about what it means to be a pupil at Titchmarsh.  The curriculum ensures that they encounter a wide range of interesting activities to broaden their horizons.  The school's faith-based ethos complements the very effective work the school does to promote British values.  Still more importantly, pupils' attitudes towards one another, and their generosity in helping others less fortunate than themselves, demonstrate their commitment to the school's values."

Ofsted, April 2017.
