Mrs Harris and Mrs Birchard
At Ashdown Primary school we are extremely proud of the eco ethos that runs through the school. This is something that is embedded in our school life and we are committed to our ethos of reduce, reuse, recycle as well as ensuring school decisions are sympathetic to these values.

Junior Green Team meet with Ashdown Actioneers
In Term 5, the Green Team and Actioneers had a joint meeting to establish how they could work together to benefit the school. The Green team shared their ongoing vision about monitoring litter in the environment and creating a small conservation area in the field and the Actioneers were keen to support this alongside their vision of saving energy around school.
Both groups were keen to work together to promote these ideals and were also keen to run a stall at the upcoming summer fair to raise more funds for some joint projects. More on this later but watch this space for some summer fair news!
Green Team Junior Minutes
Welcome to the Junior Green Team:
Megan, Dylan, Sammy, Mabel, Esther, Joshua, G and Annabel
Welcome to the Infant Green Team:
Ethan, Seb, Austin and Mia
The Infant Green Team has been busy taking action to improve our school site for both children and wildlife.
To help our feathery friends through the chilly months, we made some bird feeders to hang in the playground and wildlife area. As a way to improve our school site, we have started to create a green corridor, with the purchase and potting of some beautiful indoor plants. We hope to add to this over the future months with more donated plants.
Of course, we have also been keeping up our regular jobs of collecting the compost and checking that our class is doing its best to recycle as much paper and card as we can.
Great job Green Team!
