We are delighted to announce the relaunch of Park Road Eco Club, now known as the ‘Eco Warriors’. Each class voted for 2 representatives who represent them on the Eco Warriors team. Our Eco Warriors will are in charge of putting together an action plan to educate and involve both the school and the wider community in environmental and sustainability topics.
Our School Action Plan will follow shortly. Watch this space for our latest campaigns and projects.

Fairtrade Fortnight: 21st Feb- 6th March
The Eco Warriors kick started Fairtrade Fortnight with
an assembly explaining what Fairtrade was and what we
could do as consumers to help local farmers around the
world. During Fairtrade Fortnight, the PTA and Geography ambassadors
invited friends and relatives into school for a Fairtrade coffee morning.
The whole school baked cakes which contained Fairtrade products
for this event and it was a huge success!
Pupil Voice were delighted to host a Coffee Morning for parents
to raise money for Macmillan. Pupils entered our Bake Off
competition and baked cakes for parents to enjoy. The cakes were
amazing and parents really enjoyed them so it was a difficult task
to judgethe winners. Pupils were also able to enjoy a cake at break time.
Eco Club: Making smoothies
The Eco Warriors at Park Road Academy are excited to be involved in the planning and development of our Eco area. This will be an area accessible to all classes that will have a variety of cross - curricular applications with links to science, geography, design & technology and many more!
Firstly take a look at some of the amazing plans that the children at Eco Club designed. The images below provides an idea of what the Eco area looks like now and what it will look like after with all the different opportunities it will provide for the children.
Park Road were proud to take part in Sustrans
Big Walk and Wheel week to try to encourage
walking, scooting and cycling to school. Each day
our Eco Warriors took a survey of how each class
travelled to school. At the end of the week
we 'blinged' up our bikes and scooters to celebrate!
