We Are the Eco-Warriors
We set up our Eco warriors to help improve our school environment and also to help the children have a wider understanding of the importance of protecting our world. We are aiming to receive our Bronze award this year.
To gain the Bronze Award we have to address the following nine elements:
We have an Eco Warrior team which comprises of one representative elected from each class in Years 1 – 6. The team meets every half term to discuss current issues around the 9 elements and how they may be addressed in school.
We discovered that in St Anne's we already had been doing a lot!
- Recycling paper and cardboard
- Recycling toner and printer cartridges
- Ordering recycled supplies where possible
- Toilet sinks have self stopping taps
- Children are encouraged to walk to school
- Healthy break and lunchtime foods are provided
- Setting up a gardening club
Since our first meeting we have drawn up an action plan and conducted a full Environment Review. The council aims to meet regularly and discuss current matters and new initiatives.

Christ’s Witnesses at St. Anne’s
Witness [work] – We look at our School mission statement and work together as a witness community.
Here at St Anne’s we nurture, support and challenge all of our children to live out and to give witness to God and to our Mission Statement in their everyday experiences of school life and by developing their sense of responsibility to play their part in caring activities for good causes in the wider community; Cornerstones, Syrian shoe-box appeal, Choir visiting the elderly, Caritas fundraising.
By creating lots of creative, relevant and innovate opportunities for Pupil Leadership throughout our school, we promote a culture of confidence in witnessing to Christian beliefs and values; Preparing our children to be agents of change and of social transformation at the service of the common good.
Alongside our Pupil leader roles, we actively involve our pupils in the regular reflection of our school’s Mission Statement; through acts of Collective Worship, which take key words as the theme for their reflections.
“God is spirit, and his worshippers must worship in the Spirit and in truth…”

School Council present their ideas for developing the outdoor space-27/11/15.
On Friday the school council presented their ideas for developing the playground space. Each group met with Mrs Orrell, Miss Whitehead (healthy School's lead) and Ms Doherty (on behalf of the PTA) and presented their ideas and costings. The ideas each team presented were very different but all were excellent. Over the next 2 weeks they will have the opportunity to present their ideas to the whole school before the children have an opprtunity to vote for their favourite plan. The winning team will have their ideas translated into reality when the quipment is purchased and installed next term.

Monday 8th June 2015
Today, our pupil leaders met with parents and staff to review the school behaviour policy; including rewards and sanctions. We all worked together to incorporate Gospel Values into the policy and came up with some really good ideas. Pupils generally liked the behaviour policy currently in use, but suggested a few additions to make it even better. They also had some really good ideas as to which Gospel Values our policy should celebrate and their suggestion of having a value for each month was a super idea; even suggesting which value should relate to which month. Once the new policy is in place it will be shared with everyone; both in school and on the website.
Mrs Orrell working with a group on Gospel Values.
Here are some comments left by parents on the session:
'This session was a brilliant way to bring in policies children will agree with'
'This session was very informative,' 'It was good to see the children plan their own behaviour rules and hopefully carry them through.'
