The ECO Committee have their bronze award!!

Congratulations to our ECO Committee who have recently been awarded their Bronze Award for all their hard work over the past 18months. We have successfully met the criterion which includes establishing an ECO Committee (and maintaining it even during the pandemic), creating an action plan and sharing this with the whole school. We have lots of new ideas that we will be working on to help us move towards our Silver Award and we will be looking for new recruits soon!

During the most recent lockdown, we have still been busy with our ECO Committee activities in school and at home:

We are pleased to announce a new school-wide and ECO Committee project...

RSPB Birdwatch

Thank you to everyone that took part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch this year, the results are in! The blackbird, last year’s number one, has switched to second place. The Woodpigeon is now in the top spot. It’s the largest and commonest pigeon, making its home in fields, woods, parks and gardens.

Autumn 2020-21 Action Plan


Our ECO Committee

In 2019, we created an ECO Committee to encourage members of Almond Hill Junior School and its community to become more environmentally aware and promote environmentally friendly behaviours that help us to reduce; reuse and recycle; protect and care for the natural spaces around us. 

We established our ECO Committee and as a group decided on some initial actions we wanted to take to help us improve our environmental impact and celebrate the lovely green spaces we are lucky to have around us in our school grounds.

Our Action Plan in 2019-20 focused on these three areas


What we've done so far:

Our “Last out, lights out!” campaign.


What we've done so far: 

Year 4 regular litter picker team.

School Grounds

What we've done so far: 

Opened our brand new bird hide!

At home:

Building bug hotels
Growing our own plants
Making bird books
