Eco Committee

At Oatlands Junior School, we aim to inspire in our pupils a lifelong curiosity about the outside world and all its living things.

Through high quality learning experiences, all pupils will be equipped with the skills and knowledge to understand and limit the human impact and developing a love and interest for the natural environment.

Our Eco Committee aims

Our Eco-committee loves the natural world and all it can give in return. We are looking forward playing our part in protecting the environment at Oatlands Juniors School.

Over the coming year we will be working hard to achieve the Eco-Schools award by creating ways to be more environmentally friendly and energy efficient across the school. Our big goal for the year is to develop the nature area and outdoor spaces to attract and protect a wider variety of wildlife.

How we support the environment at Oatlands Junior School

Everyone at Oatlands Junior School plays their part to protect and support the nature. we are always working hard to become more environmentally friendly.

Our Eco-Committee regularly meet to review, make plans and implement our ideas as part of our work towards achieving the Eco-Schools green flag.

Each classroom has a recycling station to reduce waste that enters landfill and much of our lighting comes from energy efficient LED bulbs that use less energy and turn themselves off when not required.

To engage and promote a love of nature we are working towards growing flowers, fruit, and vegetables within each year group that links to the topics we are covering.

The PTA regularly run a pre-loved uniform shop in which they re-sell donated school uniform and PE kits.

This year we are working with the School Connect (#Schoolconnectproject) and have installed a clothing bank near the main gates. Not only does this prevent clothes going to landfill unnecessarily but the school is rewarded for all the donations you provide.
