Primary school eco-champions win global citizenship award

Schoolchildren at a primary school have won a national award for their dedication to environmental and sustainability issues.

Warren Road Primary School, in Warren Road, Orpington, scooped the prize for Global Citizenship in the Eco Schools programme, run by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.

More than 20,000 schools are involved in the competition, with only 10 awards handed out each year.

As part of the competition, each class at Warren Road Primary School sponsored a different endangered animal, with pupils being encouraged to think about real-world environmental issues. 

Judges were also impressed with the school’s Easter Earth Week, where pupils raised money for global environmental charities and learnt more about global citizenship.

Headteacher James Ellis said: “We are delighted to have won this national prize and are so proud of our pupils’ enthusiasm towards sustainability and environmental issues.

“While this work is led by our amazing Key Stage 2 Eco Team, our whole school community is committed to this important, global agenda. 

“Every child, from Reception to Year 6 has taken part in eco-related activities throughout the year and it’s fantastic to see their efforts recognised in this way.”

As an Eco Schools award winner, Warren Road primary school will feature in the organisation’s annual impact report.
