The Eco-Squad 2023-2024


Our aim is to empower the children of Fairview to work towards a more sustainable lifestyle and to help mould them into responsible global citizens. What young people learn today will influence how future generations live.  


Our intent is to nurture knowledge, creativity, kindness, wisdom and many more skills that will allow our children to develop and flourish, as well as helping to provide a better environmental future.


As a school, we believe we play a vital role in developing awareness and passion for the importance of our environment. It is crucial to educate our children to become independent in the knowledge of what and how things can be recycled, how to be less wasteful and how to develop an environment that is ‘nature friendly’. 


Fairview’s Eco-Squad focuses on modelling this philosophy, undertaking roles that make a difference and encouraging their peers to follow a positive, environmentally responsible attitude.

Saving Electricity Posters

The Eco-Squad have started bringing in their ’Save Electricity’ posters. A great start (bold with a clear message). These will be displayed around the school.

Litter Picking

Eco-Squad (Hawks) carrying out their litter picking duties at lunchtime. The children take it in turns to take the equipment and ensure our school grounds are litter free.

Maintaining the Eco Garden

The Eco-Squad (KS1) have now finished setting up the outdoor containers, ready for planting. The aim is to get the seeds in the soil by the end of term! While we were there, we also topped up all the bird feeders and had a look in the pond.

*Spring Update*

We have some lovely plants and flowers in our eco garden now. Our bug hotel is so active with bees and insects. It's a lovely place to enjoy the environment and wildlife. Today, members of the Eco-Squad replanted tomatoes in larger containers. They also watered the plants and explored the pond area.

Stopping Idling Engines Outside Our School

Eco-Squad members from Year 5 and 6 have learnt about how idling vehicles contribute to air pollution. They have been set a task to create posters encouraging vehicle owners to switch off their engines when parked outside of school.

Recycling Initiatives

The KS1 Eco-Squad children collected their plastic bottle recycling boxes today. They will be reminding everyone in school to make sure they are recycling their plastic bottles into their boxes.
