MRF trip

On Thursday 21st June, our eco council and school litter pickers went on an educational visit to the MRF in Mansfield to find out about how our waste is recycled. The children learned a lot and it was an insightful trip. The next week, the children put on a brilliant assembly to inform the rest of Key Stage 2 how to recycle correctly at home.  

Eco Assembly - November 2017

For our first Eco assembly of the year, the councillors told the rest of the school about what they have been up to so far. They also launched our Christmas Jumper Day competition, where children are to create eco Christmas decorations. The Eco Council planned the assembly and did a great job. Well done to them all!

Meet our Eco Council, along with Recycle Reg and Devil Dave, our Eco Mascots. They all work hard to ensure all our children are eco-friendly in the classroom and out on the playground.

Welcome to our Eco Schools web page.  Carnarvon is proud to be an eco friendly school both inside our classrooms and outside using our beautiful grounds.  Our Eco Council meets regularly to plan activities and undertake projects to educate the children here at school.  We have also agreed our Eco School Motto:  An Eco Way to Save the Day and regularly review our Action Planning to agree new strategies and targets.

Through the weekly newsletter you will receive regular updates on our progress and new initiatives which you may be able to support us with. The Eco Schools programme covers nine areas:  School Grounds, Biodiversity, Global Citizenship, Energy, Water, Waste, Litter, Transport and Healthy Living.  Schools entering the programme gain a Bronze, Silver and, ultimately, a Green Flag award through an assessment process.  The Assessor looks to see work in all 9 areas throughout the school including integration into the curriculum.

We work hard on our outdoor learning environments to create colourful, exciting and interesting areas that provide habitats for wildlife and where we can grow our own fruit and vegetables.  It's also lots of fun!


During December 2015 we passed our third re-assessment and were awarded our  Eco Schools 'Green Flag' for another two years.

On this page you can find photographs, information and see slideshows of what we do.


Look at what Eco activities we have been up to this year.

The children all took part in Green Day on Friday 7 July 2017. Each class took part in an Eco Activity of their choice and dressed in one item of green clothing. The children had a great day!
