Our Edible Garden
At Beaconsfield Primary School we are very proud of our Edible Garden and our Eco-Warriors Committee as we continue our journey as an Eco-School. The Edible Garden at Beaconsfield has created a sense of vibrancy and excitement amongst pupils and staff, supporting us in going beyond the traditional means of teaching and instilling real life and practical experiences in our pupils, where they learn how to cultivate their own food and gardens. We feel this is particularly important to ensure our pupils, who are living in an inner city environment, can develop a clear understanding of where their food comes from.
Children are encouraged to develop their own section of the Edible Garden in order to inspire the entire school community to become more involved in growing a more environmentally sustainable future. Children are taught using cross-curricular links and methods that will promote their love of learning and embed knowledge that will allow children to make informed decisions and choices about creating a greener planet, making good food choices and how to stay fit and healthy.
The Eco-Warrior Committee supports Beaconsfield Primary School in becoming a greener school and provides pupils with the opportunity to become ambassadors allowing children to use their voice, initiative and ideas in promoting a healthy, happy and environmentally friendly environment. The staff, pupils and warriors all promote a love for nature, learning and making a positive contribution to the planet as one whole school community.
