Eco School

Our school is proud to have a hard working Eco-Committee, aptly called Eco-Warriors that is made up of one nominated child from each class across the school.


The aim of our Eco-Committee is to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of the school for both pupils and for staff, and to engage the wider community.


Currently, our Eco Committee are working hard to help make Market Drayton Junior School as environmentally friendly as possible. See below what our school is doing to help the environment:


-We are continuing to work hard to reduce the amount of paper that we use in school. We try to email out letters and reminders to you rather than printing them and sending them home. We also continue to remind our teachers to think carefully before photocopying and printing


.-Each class is provided with a recycling paper box which the class and teacher are encouraged to use.


-Our school takes part in national Walk to School Week to help encourage a healthy lifestyle and sustainable travel. 

This term our Eco Warriors have been very busy designing posters to raise awareness on how to become more eco-friendly. Although it was a tough choice as the votes for the winner were very close, Martha won the competition.


Her fantastic poster has been put up all around the school and is displayed in every classroom to encourage more children to understand some of the small things they can be doing to help save our planet.


Cycle to school week was a great success this term with lots of children eager to reduce our carbon emissions by becoming more active.


We are now working more closely with Market Drayton Climate Action to collaborate our ideas and raise more awareness for the greater good of our local community.  Clang for the Climate was a great way that our pupils and the community came together to raise awareness.


Next term, our Eco Warriors are going to present an assembly to all of our school on the effects we are having on the Earth and what we can be doing to help reduce this. With the enthusiasm and passion our children have we are determined we can help to make a change.



Eco Christmas Wreaths

Some of our Eco-Warriors have been busy reusing paper to create these amazing Christmas Wreaths. 

We have an eco-code which is displayed around the school reminding all the children and teachers about how we can be more environmentally friendly and help save the environment.

Please support us by following our Eco-code.

Woodland Trust’s Green Tree School Award



Our school is proud to be taking part in the Green Tree School award scheme and we are delighted to have achieved the Bronze Award in 2019.


The Green Tree School Award helps to link the work our Eco-Committee carries out with the work completed during each classes Forest School sessions. The Green Tree Award rewards schools for completing environmental projects and for encouraging outdoor learning. It is a fun and fantastic way to help the school celebrate our natural environment!


We are now working hard to achieve our Silver Award.
