We offer Bristol schools free waste and recycling education workshops. Working with all schools in Bristol, we will deliver inspiring curriculum-linked educational programmes and will help and support schools' compliance with Sustainable Schools and achieving Eco-Schools awards.
Our free programme will help your school to:
- bring recycling and the environment to life for pupils
- improve your recycling facilities and save your school money
- face new sustainable schools targets with confidence.
To book a visit, please email our waste education officer on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parson Street Primary School followed the advice for recycling and as a result currently recycle 88% of their school's waste.
Our Schools Waste Education Programme has received some excellent feedback and below are a few comments from some of the Bristol Schools we have visited.
"Very Visual, Interactive, Really good assembly, Speaker was clear interesting and experienced, children listened well". - North Bristol Teacher.
"Children were enthusiastic about their workshop - children were all engaged. Nice activities, hands on so all children involved - mixed in with information which were able to understand".- Central Bristol Head
"Very Good, children have a better understanding about there their rubbish goes, what needs to be recycled and how they can reduce their waste". - South Central Bristol Teacher
We have created a recycling rate for all Bristol schools by comparing how much each school recycles, to how much waste it produces overall. This means, a school that recycles a little, but is careful with what it throws away, could be one of the top recycling schools.
Certificates have been sent to the following schools for:
- First Place – St George Primary School.
- Second Place – Hotwells Primary School.
- Third Place – St Annes Junior School.
- Least Waste Produced – St Annes Infant School.
- Most Improved School – Chester Park Junior School.
- Most Recycled – Chester Park Junior School.
