Eco Council


Eco-Warriors with Dallas Campbell.

Our Eco Council, made up of ten 'Eco-Warriors', consists of representatives from every class (Year 2 to Year 6).

Together we think about how we can look after our school, its grounds and the environment.

The Eco-Warriors meet on a regular basis to work on projects and also to develop ideas to raise funds and whole school awareness of varying issues.

In 2013/14 we had a busy year and, amongst other things, took part in 'Waste Week' which raised awareness of the importance of recycling and had the school 'buzzing' with excitement when Dallas Campbell, a BBC television presenter, came into school to kick start 'The Big Bumblebee Discovery' campaign.

This new academic year we are excited to be working on a new project in conjunction with 'Birmingham Sustainable Schools'. The programme has been designed to help schools save money and reduce their carbon footprint.

The prime areas that we will be focusing on are:

  • Energy saving and Water
  • Sustainable Transport and Road Safety
  • Sustainable Waste Management and Recycling
  • Biodiversity, Food and Growing Projects

We are very much looking forward to a fun, hardworking, greener year and would love to hear your thoughts or answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to get in touch!

Birmingham Sustainable Schools


Mrs Carn, the Eco-Council and the Lord Mayor.

In 2014/15, Yenton Primary School successfully completed the 'Birmingham Sustainable School's' programme by taking part in a range of initiatives to make our school more sustainable.

In July 2015 we were invited to the Birmingham Council House to meet with other successful schools where we had a 'graduation lunch' and met with the Lord Mayor of Birmingham who presented us with a certificate.

The children did a wonderful presentation in front of many other schools from Birmingham as well as MP’s and other important people! After the presentation, the children were treated to a wonderful lunch including sandwiches and cakes.

It was a very proud moment for Mrs Carn, our Eco-Coordinator. What a fantastic day we had!
