During Move up Day each year, two children from each class (Key Stage 1) are chosen to be part of the Eco Team to represent their class.

Everyone at West Byfleet Infants work hard to make the school as eco-friendly as possible.

 

Year 2 Eco Team are in charge of ensuring that the classes are trying their hardest to be eco-friendly. They award classes with an Eco Token each day if they have achieved the Eco Checklist. Each week the class with the winning amount of tokens win the Eco Trophy and wins 5 marbles for the class.

Year 1 Eco Team are in charge of ensuring the litter pickers are accessible for all the children during playtimes. All children are responsible for making sure the school environment is clean.

At West Byfleet Infant School we encourage all children to become Eco Warriors and think about their environment  not just at school but at home as well. 

At school this term we have started to recycle pens so if you have any old pens at home -pop them into a bag and pass them along to the Eco Team. Once we have enough pens we are going to send them off to exchange them for money for our school. 

 

To celebrate World Rivers Day on the 27th September, Affinity Water have launched a competition:

Green Flag Award

2020 We gained our Green Flag award. Thank you to all those that have helped us!

We have a new bin thanks to Mrs Hannington! She has kindly built us an outside bin with two sections. One for Rubbish and one for Recycling. The Eco Team have been busy painting it so it is clear which section to use. Green is for Recycling, Blue is for Rubbish. As a school we are currently recycling paper, plastic and batteries.
