Community Links: Clean Goole Campaign Group

Kingsway Primary School have great links with the Clean Goole Campaign Group.

Our families have participated in joint litter picks around our area including: Kingsway Park, Adeline Street and Estcourt Car Park.

It has been a great way to socialise and come together as a community! Our school Eco-Warriors keep the information updated on the notice board down the drive. Look out for the notices around our town too!

Our Projects

April 2022: Railing Banner Competition

We continued our work with the Assistant Road Safety Officer at East Riding to encourage people to travel to school by bike or scooter rather than drive. KS2 pupils were requested to design a railing banner to encourage this. The 3 winning designs will be printed and displayed on our school railings for all to see. All entries were judged by the eco-council with goodie bags given to the winners. Other Entries will be displayed around the school.

December 2021: Bling Your Bike!

We worked with the Assistant Road Safety Officer at East Riding to encourage people to travel to school by bike or scooter rather than drive. Year 5 and 6 pupil’s decorated their bikes and scooters, which were put on display and judged by the eco-council. There was a winner and runner up for each year group and a winner for the best scooter and bike in each year group. 

October 2021: Woodmeadow Trust Trip

The eco-councillors had a great day exploring Woodmeadow Trust in Escrick. We made bug hotels, went pond dipping and created outdoor dens!

July 2021: Driffield Show

In the summer term, the eco-council worked hard to collect evidence and photos to enter the Driffield show. We created a display showing how our outdoor areas are environmentally friendly, use recycled materials and attracts wildlife.

Sensory Area

 We held an afterschool club to improve a section of our outdoor area. The children designed and research the sensory area first. We then spent many hours clearing away the area before creating our final product! 

School Litter Picks

 We hold regular litter picks on the school grounds.
