ECO Work

Summer Term 2017

Our Eco Focus this year has been our Polli:nation project after we, together with 3 other local schools, won a grant which would enable us to finance a school topicof interest.For Calveley, we have chosen to use the money to fence off a secure area and buy in specialised equipment needed to keep our own bee hives.

Pollinators are currently reducing in numbers but are essential for the creation of may of our food products.We will be planting lots of bee friendly plants around the school so that they do not have too far too travel.

In order to raise awareness of the plight of pollinators, we have a group of Polli:nation Ambassadors. Their role is to learn as much as they can about keeping bees and to meet with the children from the 3 other schools and find out about each others projects. The children have also led assemblies, supplied competition entries to design our own school Polli:nation Logo (won by Daisie in Class 4) and been part of a 'Big Art' after school club making giant bees!

Our Green Flag focus will be back in the next school year as we head towards our 5th Green Flag award in February 2018 . The award is reassessed every two years and looks at areas such as school grounds, recycling, energy, water, biodiversity, and global awareness. The children have been instrumental in achieving this prestigious award.


We wish to remind you that school would love your donations of old shoes and clothing. Also, any printer ink cartridges will be welcomed too.

Calveley Primary Academy top tips for how you can be environmentally friendly at home:
•    Turn off lights when not in a room
•    Don’t leave electrical equipment on standby
•    Only fill the kettle up with the amount of water you actually need
•    Use energy-saving light bulbs
•    Take more showers than baths
•    Cycle or walk instead of using your car

You may even save yourself some money too!!
