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.
Meet our 'Plastic Free Schools' Action Group!
These children will play a very important role in ensuring that we meet all of the objectives required towards to become a Plastic Free School.
These objectives are:
- Forming our action group
-Conducting a Trash Mob on our playground
- Challenging the government and asking for their support
- Challenging the plastics industry
- Eradicating 3 plastics from our school for good

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
- Black waste bags
