Fairfield First School is an Eco school. We work hard to care for ourselves, care for each other and care for the environment near and far.
As part of our Eco work, we look at the issues of: litter, waste, energy, transport, water, school grounds, healthy living, biodiversity and global perspective.

We achieved our 7th Green Flag in April 2016
To help the whole school with this work, we have elected an Eco Action Team which includes representatives from each year group.
Oak Class: Awaiting Elections

Holly Class: Tilly, Toby, Olivia, Elsie, Noah, Harvey, Tilly

Recent initiatives have included whole school outreach sessions from Canals and Rivers Trust, the RSPB and Severn Trent Water.
In addition to this we have participated in Waste Week to raise awareness of plastic pollution and conducted a Twitter Poll to encourage our families to reduce their single use plastic waste.
We are also very fortunate to have a dedicated year round Gardening club who meet on a weekly basis after school. Recent food crops have included, potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries and peas.
We compost our fruit and veg scraps from playtime and lunchtime snacks, we water plant pots and containers around school and ensure that we have varied habitats available within the school grounds including our very own Buggingham Palace, bird feeders and a Buzz Stop for busy pollinators.
