Sustainability at London Fields Primary
Promoting sustainable living and learning about the global climate crisis have become huge focuses at London Fields. In 2018 we held our first ever 'sustainability week.' Each class learned about a different aspect of living sustainability. Topics included learning about renewable energy, investigating food miles and carbon footprints, learning about water waste and plastic pollution and promoting recycling across the borough. This week was a real celebration of all things eco and we have now made it into an annual event.
We promote a sustainable ethos through all areas of school life. We are a terracycle centre for recycling crisp packets, biscuit wrappers and beauty packaging, and we compost all food waste. We are also working to reduce the use of single-use plastics. Last year we launched our own line of reusable London Fields water bottles and we have run campaigns both in and outside school to highlight this issue. We have been lucky enough to receive funding for a 'living wall' in our Sheep Lane playground. The build was completed in August 2019 and is designed to reduce air pollution in the school grounds.
The school has a team of 'eco protectors' who work with Ms Drucquer to promote sustainable living across the school.
