As a learning community centred in Christ, we walk hand in hand with God on our journey in faith.
We are now an accredited Plastic Free School! Thank you to all of the children, parents, and staff for all of their hard work and dedication.
We will continue to work towards being a sustainable school in the new school year in a bid to protect God's precious creation for years to come.
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 brands 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
