We have several recycling bins located at the main entrance inside the school and some recycling bins (for example a shoe bin located on the KS2Playground). The staff at Raglan recycle their used plastic milk bottles in the staff room! We freecycled all of our library furniture when we were renovating our new library and most of our old bookcases went to the Red House (a National Trust Property in Kent which was once the home of William Morris) as they were creating a new library.
Easter 2018 we up-cycled 7 of our old metal filing cabinets and created colourful planters. Parents supplied packing materials like polystyrene to fill up the bottom before adding soil. These were then allocated to year groups and the pupils have been grow plants.
In April 2019 one of our lovely parents registered the school in the crisp recycling programme. To date the school has collected 3.5kg of crisp packets which will be sent to Terracycle. That’s a lot of crisp packets!!!
