This year, a new group of children have been appointed by their peers to be a part of our school’s Eco-Committee. The Eco-Committee  will share a range of responsibilities including energy saving and recycling, and will continue to learn how they can look after their school and local environment. The Eco-Committee will work alongside Miss Smith to lead assemblies and Eco themed weeks throughout the year, for all the children and staff to take part in. We are hoping that the Eco-Committee can have a positive impact on our school and help us to achieve the ‘Eco Schools’ Award.

The Big Battery Hunt 

We are pleased to inform you that that Rudston Primary School is taking part in an exciting recycling challenge called ‘The Big Battery Hunt’. As  a school, we decided to take part in this nationwide campaign to help recycle more batteries. We believe recycling batteries can make a real difference to our planet, and we want to inspire our pupils to care for the environment, now and in the future.

Each child  has received  collection box which they can fill with batteries and then return to school.  We are aiming to fill a larger battery bin full of batteries so we can send them off to be recycled.

Our school will be in with a chance of winning some great prizes for helping to collect as many batteries as possible and will also be helping the environment too!

Please fill your collection box and return it to school with any of the following batteries: AAA, AA, C or D.

Walking Wednesday

This year at Rudston, we have introduced walking Wednesdays to encourage our families to walk to school at least once a week. As a school we aim to promote physical activity and to reduce congestion around our school.  Every Wednesday different members of staff will meet children and their families at our two meeting points ( the Cadwa & the Childwall Methodist Church)  and walk with them to school. Children who walk to school will receive stickers and have their journeys logged on our Living Streets Travel Tracker and the Marathon Tracker.

Meeting Point: Cadwa on Rocky lane (8:30)  Childwall Methodist Church on Score Lane (8:35)


Living Streets’ Walk to School Campaign 

We are please to announce that Rudston Primary school has joined Living Streets Walk to School Campaign. Since December 2017 , pupils have been taking part in WOW (Walk Once a Week), the year round walk to school challenge. Pupils have been logging their daily journeys to school on the WOW Travel Tracker to earn their WOW badges each month.

To earn their WOW badge, children have had to commute to school at least once a week, by either walking, cycling or scooting.


Here are our brilliant WOW results from September 2018

Walking to school has increased by 7% going from 36% to 49%

Park and Stride is up by 15% going from 10% to 25%

Car usage is down by 28% going from 49% to 21%

Bottle Top Recycling 

Over several month we have been encouraging children to recycle any plastic bottle tops by bringing them into school for our Bottle Top Art project. We collected so many and used them to make some beautiful artwork for our school garden! We are so proud of the finished products.
