Lindfield Primary Academy’s Eco Warriors are currently working towards getting the school an Eco Schools Green Flag award. Explore this page to find out about what they have been up to in their efforts to make the school a more environmentally friendly place!
Eco Warriors meet regularly and have been inviting members of the eco-community into school to share their knowledege and expertise. Most recently this has included the RSPB.
The Eco-Warriors have carefully carried out an environmental survey of the school grounds which has helped them to identify key areas that could be improved.
Of the nine areas covered by the Eco Schools Green Flag award, they are currently focusing on Biodiversity and are looking for ways in which to encourage wildlife that can make the school grounds their home.
The Pond project
The first project the Eco Warriors identified was the pond, which was damaged and overgrown. They thought the area had great potential for encouraging wildlife and improving the biodiversity of the school grounds. After a successful pitch to the PTA, they secured funding to renovate and rejuvenate the pond.
Eco Warriors have embraced the opportunity to get hands-on and have dug out the flower beds, planting them with a range of plants that will flower and attract all sorts of insects in the Spring and Summer months.
We will be continuing to develop this area and hope that it will become a quiet space for reflection, an area to explore and discover and a place to learn!
