Passionate Protectors - Eco School

As part of the Trees2School initiative created by former Mayor Dylan Rigg we were fortunate enough to have current Mayor of Trafford Delores O'Sullivan come to school to plant two beautiful lilac trees with our KS2 Eco Reps. What a lovely afternoon, memories were made and we are very much looking forward to seeing the trees bloom!

Our Passionate Protectors have been busy planting trees in the garden, donated by the Woodland Trust. They have also been busy clearing the EYFS flower beds, ready for the Reception children to plant some bulbs. Litter picking was also on the go...what a busy afternoon!

5 Newton created and performed a Passionate Protectors assembly, in which the 'Climate Change All Change' superheroes came from the future to help children (with our amazing architects from Levitt Bernstein) find a way to save the world!

The Passionate Protectors in Y5 have been planting daffodil and tulip bulbs around the school, we are looking forward to seeing the pops of colour in the spring!

The Smartboard Spies have been trained up and are on the hunt for Smartboards which have been left out teachers!

2023-24 We are excited to introduce our new Eco Council for this academic year.

2022-23 Meet our Eco Council members for this academic year, the team are super keen and ready for action to make Springfield as green as can be!

The Eco Council have been busy completed the Eco Schools review, it helps us see how well we are doing, but also ways in which we can improve how environmentally friendly we are.

Yet again, we have saved 1000s of pens heading to landfill. Thanks to Rymans in Sale we have been able to recycle all the used pens since September, delivered by our eco reps today!

Welcome to our ECO page, here you will find out about all the learning and activities going on at Springfield to help us become more and more sustainable each year. First of all however, please meet our Eco Council. Here they are, hard at work, sorting pens for our recycling point.

Check out our Eco Council, taking time to complete the Environmental Review - which is an important part of our Eco Flag application. Not only does it show us ways in which we are being environmentally friendly, it also helps us decide what to focus on next, on our journey to increase Springfield's sustainability.

Throughout the year, all year groups study topics which have an environmental focus. And each year teachers are aiming to build more and more of this learning into the curriculum. Here are Y4 learning about and making bug hotels, the importance of clearing laurels to help the forest floor regenerate and taking part in vegetarian week.

Year 5 are taking part in the Climate Change project with Tom (from CCAC), in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The children have produced their own sustainable towns and cities for the future working together with their peers and coming up with some amazing ideas. They also managed to get outside and appreciate and evaluate others' work like real landscape designers!

Here are our amazing Y6 eco-reps launching eco-week to all the pupils in the school. In one week they have done three assemblies to different year groups, explaining the importance of eco week, and the different activities each year group is taking part in. Top work Luca, Lucas and Mya!

We are 'Passionate Protectors of the Environment' we have had such a great week, with all year groups learning about how to be more eco friendly, sustainable and the importance of why we need to be!

This year for the first time in 3 years, the Y6 Charity Day took place and we loved it! All groups had to create something which would raise money but not create lots of waste. All the money raised is going to #TeamSeas a charity dedicated to removing plastic from our oceans.

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
