Welcome to our Eco Warriors page!
Our team of Eco Warriors work very hard in school to develop our wildlife garden and to make our school a more environmentally friendly place. Every year, the Eco Warriors organise an Eco Day where each class takes part in many eco activities! In 2020 the Eco Warriors were awarded their first Green Flag and the UKS2 Eco Warriors were awarded Environment Agency Climate Champions 2020! This year (2021/2022) the Eco Warriors have been awarded the school's 2nd Green Flag! Wonderful Achievements!

The Royal Institution Visit
On Friday 10th September 2021, Olivia from The Royal Institution came to deliver their awe-inspiring 'We've Got the Power!' workshop to all F2, KS1 and KS2 children. The children were introduced to fossil fuels, alternative sources of energy as well as Climate Change and much more!
After school we held a community event where families could also come and experience a show to excite and amaze!
Eco Warrior Statement of Intent
At Wickersley Northfield we provide children with an opportunity to take leadership of environmental issues in our school and local community through our Eco Warrior Committee. We also encourage pupils to develop an awareness in the classroom of environmental topics that can impact our world. Incorporating sustainability and Eco Schools allows pupils to embrace our core values of collaboration, curiosity and challenge whilst maintaining a child-centred approach. The Eco Schools programme allows schools to embark on a path towards improving the environment in both school and the local community while having a positive impact on the lives of pupils, their families and school staff.
Below you will see some photographs of just some of the fantastic work the Eco Warriors and the pupils at Wickersley Northfield have carried out at our school, including developing our Wildlife Garden.
