With leadership support from the Headteacher and Deputy Head who regard this as such a significant area of learning that the school is focussing on it across the year they have used the route map as a basis for producing their very own Southroyd Climate Action Route Map (SCARM).

The school has dedicated webpages outlining how they developed their SCARM as well as a comprehensive, dedicated Action Plan describing a range of actions under a number of headings including in for example Widening participation’ - a COP assembly. In ‘Curriculum Application’ how they will establish links across the science, geography and SHE curricula and, through their ‘International Links’, they are sharing concepts of COP as well as their thoughts and pledges during climate change week with Bachpan Primary school an international partner in Gujarat, India.

Since the introduction of SCARM pupils at Southroyd Primary School have;

  • explored through their school council the implications of climate change with the school Catering team (meat free days) and met with the School Business Manager and Site Manager to discuss waste, recycling and energy costs
  • Eco monitors have used posters and tweets to communicate the challenges we all face to inform staff and parents of good practices
  • After school Eco-club children have devised a routine for monitoring the school site
  • regularly monitored school waste, and
  • taken part in Greenpeace’s Big Plastic survey
