Eco-School
Springfield pupils learn to look after the environment within school and the wider community.   Through the efforts of our school community we have already gained both the bronze and silver awards.  The school has an Eco Action Team which includes pupils who are also Eco Monitors.  The Action Team has worked hard to consult with the school community and to produce an action plan  to achieve a more sustainable environment.  Actions have included reaching out to parents with advice, information and support on domestic energy saving measures and distributing low energy light bulbs to parents to achieve the bronze award and reducing the amount of waste the school produces to achieve the silver award.   We have now a productive Eco team of children that are continually working towards making Springfield a better eco–school. For more information please visit www.eco-schools.org.uk
