At St. Peter’s we recognise that for the future of our children we must live more sustainably. We are committed to working to minimise the environmental impact of our school.  We are working hard to reduce our waste. Our curriculum is being developed to ensure that children leave us with a good knowledge of environmental issues. A range of speakers are invited to our assemblies to inspire staff and children. We also aim to motivate change ourselves both within our community and politically. Children are encouraged to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our planet by writing letters calling for change and sharing their knowledge. 

We hope that you will join us on this journey. 

Our Environmental Sustainability Leader is Ms Jemima Moore. For more information or to get involved please email:

We are a plastic-free school!

Eco Champions Bulb Planting

Eco Champions joined ECC officer Lorna Christo to plant 1,000 bulbs under the fruit trees on The Green. Sadly, lockdown meant that the trees were planted without us but children added painted wood slices, and planting the bulbs has given them a real sense of care for the area. We will be excited to see the snowdrops and crocuses emerge at the beginning of next year.

Eco Champions and Nursery Make Paper!

Sally Jackson, from Don’t Let Devon Go to Waste, visited us to teach our Eco Champions how to make new paper out of old paper.

They learnt about the process in which paper is made and how recycling paper saves trees and waste. Once they had got the hang of paper making, the Eco Champions became great teachers as they invited the nursery children to come and have a go. It was very messy but lots of fun and everyone is very pleased with their paper.
