    Eco Warriors

    Introducing Thrupp's New Eco Warriors 2023!


    Eco Warriors


    Our Eco-Warriors are volunteers from each class who attend regular meetings to devise ways of making Thrupp School more eco-friendly. Our Eco-Warriors help develop and monitor strategies for making Thrupp a greener school. They encourage the reduction of as much waste as possible, carry out transport surveys and think of new ways the school can be more sustainable. 


    Our School Eco Code: Being Keen to Keep Our School Green






    In order to get the Green Flag Award, we worked on the following 3 topics:





    We were awarded the flag in July 2019, and will continue to be working to support the environment through our regular eco monitor meetings and action plans.

    24/10/2019 - Eco Magic Show!

    Kestrel's Eco day. We talked about what is under the ground and in history we undertook an archaeological dig. We put our finds in chronological order and noted which sort of rubbish was biodegradable and which was not.

    Eco Green Schools Flag Award (2019) and Pride of the Cotswolds nomination (finalists)

    11.09.2019: In July (see below for more information), our amazing school was awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag award. On 6th September, the  Pride of the Cotswolds 2019: School of the Year finalists were announced - and our school is one of the three schools that have made it to the final of this year's Pride of the Cotswolds awards! 


    Thrupp School  was nominated for the commitment by staff and pupils to the environment. Recently (2019) pupils gathered 100kg of plastic film in 56 days, as part of a Recycle with Riley challenge set by Stroud company Berry bpi group. One of the people who nominated the school said: “I genuinely feel they have the children’s best interests at heart.” Our Headteacher, Mrs Mylechreest said: “Thrupp Primary School is thrilled and honoured to have been nominated for this prestigious award. “We feel at Thrupp our children are encouraged to be very responsible, eco aware citizens.”

    A great big (green) high-five to the wonderful children, staff, parents, and community for being involved in this wonderful achievement. The awards ceremony is taking place on 26th September - we will keep you all updated! 

    We are officially AMAZING. In July, our school was awarded with the Eco-Schools Green Flag award, which is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning! We are all incredibly proud of the children, staff and community for supporting Thrupp School to achieve this amazing accolade!

    28/04/2019 - Gardening work party

    31/01/2019 - A fantastic day was had by all at Thrupp Primary School for our Eco Day. Each class learnt about Sustainability, and it was wonderful to see a sea of green clothing worn! Keep up the amazing eco support!

    Please find information in the attached PowerPoint about our AMAZING recycling campaign 'Recycle with Riley'

    News Update 10/01/2019: Wow – what a fabulous start to the New Year, 2019. We have not only achieved our target for our ‘Recycle with Riley’ campaign, but also surpassed it! Our total thus far is 114.75kg, meaning that we are the first school in Stroud to achieve the target. I am so proud of our amazing school community. This means that we have now earned our picnic bench, but I would really like for us to carry on collecting the soft plastic – because what an amazing way to reduce waste going into landfill! The bin will stay in the usual place, and the plastic will continue to be collected regularly. Thank you so much everybody, and a huge congratulations.
