Plastic Free Schools

Recycling Champions Day

Today we worked hard to become 'Plastic Champions'. We started by conducting a 'Trash Mob' outside of our school, identifying any litter we found. We then wrote letters to brand such as Coca-Cola, Walkers and Mountain Dew, pleading with them to eliminate their use of plastic.

English Martyrs’ are working alongside Surfers Against Sewage to become a Plastic Free School.

Surfers Against Sewage are a national marine conservation and campaigning charity that inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife.


As a school we are campaigning to eliminate the use of single-use plastics in our school in order to protect our precious Earth.


As a result of this, we have made the decision to eliminate the following three plastics from our school: 

- Single-use bottles

- Laminating

- Black waste bags
