At Airedale Infant School we strive to look after our environment and encourage everyone to be as eco-friendly as possible. Each year a new team of Eco Warriors will be selected from Reception to 2 who are supported by Mrs Robinson. Each class elects representatives to be their Eco-Warriors. The Eco-Warriors have an active role in school. They raise our awareness about sustainability and encourage everyone to be good at recycling and saving energy. We encourage good habits for the future. Eco-Warrior representatives help the school make decisions and generate ideas for future planning, to increase the school's awareness of how we can be even more considerate of our world. This team meet regularly with Mrs Robinson to discuss issues, raise awareness through assemblies and check that pupils and staff are contributing to our eco friendly school.

Eco Warriors will be saving energy by making sure they turn out lights not just in their own classroom, but also in rooms where people have left them on and ensuring interactive boards are switched off when not in use. This half term we purchased paper recycling bins for each classroom so that we can monitor waste paper.
The Eco-Schools programme is focused on nine key topics. These are: Energy; Water ; Biodiversity; School grounds; Healthy living; Transport; Litter; Waste; Global citizenship
