Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Eco - Schools

At Ashmead we are keen on improving the environmental footprint of our school through motivating children with learning and hands on experience. With our team of dedicated Eco Warriors meeting once a week, we have made positive changes in reducing our waste through a variety of actions such as: recycling, reducing the amount of wasted energy by nominating class Energy Wardens, as well as encouraging a greater number of children to travel to school in more environmentally friendly ways. We have followed the Eco Schools program and are very proud to have been awarded the Green Flag status for our hard work.

Meet Your Eco Warriors

February 2024- We joined an organisation named "Tiny Forests" to help plant a tiny forest right next to our school playing field. We learned about why forests are important and had lots of fun getting muddy!

We had great fun using recyclable materials to create some bird feeders. Please look on our Eco Schools Resources page to find instructions on how to make your own bird feeder.

Winter Wreath Making December 2023- We enjoyed recycling an old box and taking cuttings from the evergreen plants around the school to make winter wreaths.

We have been awarded our Green Flag status from Eco Schools!

Road Safety week 2023- The Eco Warriors have been busy creating posters, scavenger hunts and organising a Be Bright Day.

Another round of litter picking in the school grounds turns up some more strange objects.

Our Eco Code

We have used some of the money we raised from the Bag2School clothing charity to buy some recycling bins for school! Our first bin has been installed in the staffroom and is collecting lots of milk cartons as well as other recyclable materials such as cans and lots of cardboard boxes.

Litter Picking in the school grounds. What a funny bunch of things we found!


You have completed 19,899 active trips to school from November to January!

We have given out 1042 Walk to School badges.

Keep up the good work by walking, biking, scooting or using public transport to get to school.


RSPB Bird Watch 2023- All the children had the opportunity to go bird spotting in the school grounds, identifying birds and counting each species to help with the RSPB bird count to help understand the bird population in the UK. We all had lots of fun and I hear that the Year 6's were tremendously lucky to witness a Red Kite feasting on a rat in one of our trees! Thank you to those of you who also did the survey at home and recorded their findings on the RSPB website.

Mr Pickover joined the Eco Warriors and Gardening club to plant 4 oak trees on the edge of the school field. He told us that an oak tree can live between 900 and 1000 years old. We cannot wait to watch them grow over the years and watch them produce homes for many creatures.

UPDATE: So far we have collected 1231 batteries but there is still time to collect more! Keep them coming. Well done to everyone who has helped to save our planet by handing them in.
