Axbridge C of E First School Academy


Featherstone All Saints CofE Academy - Eco Council

As a school community we care about the future of our planet and are working towards becoming an Eco-School. We have a fantastic Eco-Team, made up of children from across the school, staff and governors and parents.  Their role is to raise awareness of the environment, encourage children and staff to think about their environmental impact in their everyday lives and drive change within school to help make a difference. Our recent projects have included:

  • planting a small orchard and wildlife area in the school field to provide a valuable habitat for wildlife
  • Introducing composting bins in all classrooms for fruit waste from morning snack
  • Litter picking on the school field and playground
  • Making re-usable beeswax food wraps with Year 4
  • Taking part in recycling programmes for baby food pouches and batteries

We have also been really lucky to have guest speakers from Carymoor Environmental Trust and Water Aid come into school to highlight important ways we can help the environment in school and at home.

Ella’s Kitchen Recycling Scheme

We are part of the Ella’s Kitchen baby food pouch recycling scheme. This means if you have empty baby food pouches (any brand, not just Ella’s Kitchen), you can bring them to the school office or into Busy Bees.
