Welcome to our Eco page.
We are a Green Flag Eco School and are very proud of the work that we do to reduce CO2 emissions and protect our planet!
We have an active Eco Team comprised of a parent, a governor, staff and pupil reps. We meet monthly and would love to welcome new members so if you are interested in joining please contact Mrs Rowland or Mrs Waters. Some of the Eco initiatives we support at Dobcoft include:
We support Fairtrade and have been awarded the Fairtrade School Award in recognition for the work we do raising awareness of this important foundation.
We encourage all pupils to become familiar with the Fairtrade logo and we ask their families to consider buying fairtrade products during fairtrade Fortnight!
Last term we took part in the Sheffield Climate Change Alliance's "Sing for the Climate" This was a great opportunity top raise awareness of the importance of climate change through music and be part of a city wide initiative.
Each year we take time to support Switch off Fortnight and teach pupils to consider the importance of turning off lights to reduce CO2 emissions and to save money!
We also take part in the Global EARTH HOUR to consider energy and to support the WWF. Our pupils love learning about endangered creatures and ways to protect them!
Please look at our calendar of forthcoming Eco events and if you have any ideas or ways to support our work contact us. We value your ideas and would love to work in partnership with you to "save planet Earth"
