Eco Matters

We are so passionate at Ash Grange to educate all members of the school community about environmental understanding and actions to make the world a better place.   Every child learns about the local, national and world environment through the national curriculum and half termly projects. In addition to this  and there are opportunities to deepen and apply this knowledge throughout each day, regular routine activities and special events. We have a an Eco Council who are working towards the Eco School status with lots of wonderful plans for everyone to get involved with.  Follow the links to find out more.  


This is our pledge 





During the 2022-2023 academic year, our three Eco topics are:


  • Schools grounds: we will be planting vegetables in our new planters, we have planted trees around the fence, we added benches made with recycled plastic in the playground. 
  • Water: learning how to use responsibly, learning why water is important, learning how to check for leaks, making sure we turn off the taps after use.
  • Healthy Living: learning how to be healthy thanks to diet and exercise, growing our own food, taking part in a healthy body project called Candodo.


This year, Ash Grange will have an Earth Week, learning all about eco and how to look after our planet. The Earth Week will take place during the week commencing the 24th April 2023.





Energy Challenge

Since March 2023 we are taking part in a energy saving challenge with other schools locally. We hope to save a lot of energy. If you want to save energy at home, follow this link to the government website. 


Look at how our energy use is decreasing - interesting which days use the most.

Time to get saving.


Ways we save energy:

1. Lights on automatic off or switched off when leaving the space.

2. Tech charged only if less than 50% of charge.

3. Turn off tech when not used.

4. Turn off heating before opening windows.

5. Turn off heating when hot.

6. No hand dryers used in the school.

7. Double glazing added year by year to improve efficiency of windows. 

8. New pool cover to improve heat containment in pool.


More ideas Eco Council?


How about at home, how are you saving energy?

1. Lights off when not in the room

2. Reduce washing temperature.

3. Not leaving items on standby.

4. Tech off when not in use and not left on over night.

5. Turn charging tech off once charged - put in power saving mode to make it last longer.

6. Heating turned down and even off!




Summer 2022


We are delighted to share that we have been awarded the Eco School Green Flag! 
This is a great achievement for us and we are very proud to be part of the Eco School community.

We will continue to work hard to take care of our planet and share our eco passion with the children. 

Spring Term 2022


This half term, our eco councillors have been exploring wildlife in our nature area. We are pleased to report that our school is full of life, which shows a healthy environment. 

We have also looked at transports and how we come to school each day. Tally charts were completed and we will share results soon.

Miss Beedie and Miss Postel attended the Eco Summit in Woking on the 23rd March and were offered three oak trees for our school grounds. We will plant and dedicate them to the Queen’s Jubilee.

Next term, we will look at nature closely with plants and wildlife coming back to us after the long winter. Research has shown that spending time in nature has positive long-term effects on our wellbeing and happiness. This is why this will be our target next term, and we will share in class five things we noticed in nature each week.

Please share your thoughts about Eco and how it has impacted on your child.

Thank you,


The Eco Committee
