Global Citizenship

World Earth Day
The theme for Earth Day 2024 is ’Planet vs Plastics’, raising awareness on the health risks of plastics, and calling for action on plastic pollution and single-use plastics."
For more information, follow this link:
For Earth Day 2024, EARTHDAY.ORG is unwavering in our commitment to end plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of ALL plastics by 2040.
Our children have had assemblies, lessons and activities where they have been learning about the importance of being 'courageous advocates' who campaign to make a difference, calling for action on plastic pollution. This will be continued throughout the summer term, including learning around World Ocean Day in June. We link this learning with the concept of God's Kingdom, the importance of looking after our world and working towards a fairer and more equitable world.  
Via the tab to the left of this page, you can find out about our link school in Bo, Sierra Leone. Fifteen schools here (in Warwick and Leamington) are linked with fifteen schools there and they are all working on reducing plastic pollution. Below are some photos from one of the schools in the network:
Global Goals 12 Project

Our One World Link schools project is about helping children and communities understand the need for a more responsible use of materials which avoids waste and pollution.

At All Saints we have chosen to focus on recycling plastic and to support a campaign to create a Global Plastics Treaty.

This term we have had fun making things by re-using what would otherwise be thrown away, making musical instruments and Artwork. We are also collecting lots of different materials to send off to TerraCycle recycling projects; crisp packets, old pens and old glue-sticks.

Year 6 members of Bo Club designed the poster below.



 Global Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Last term Mrs Garrett did an assembly all about our new project with Bo. We are all looking at ways to reduce waste and be responsible with what we throw away. In poorer countries they don’t have the facilities to recycle plastic as we do, so it can cause a lot of problems. Our link schools are encouraging children to teach their parents about re-using plastic waste instead of throwing it away.

At All Saints we are collecting old pens, glue sticks and crisp packets and sending them off to TerraCycle.

Fundraising for One World Link

Members of our Bo Club helped to prepare the buckets which were then used to collect donations at 37 Panto performances in December and early January. The charity is delighted to have raised £8,500 and is very grateful for all the volunteers who made this possible. This included 7 families from the All Saints Warwick community.


Year 6 were delighted when our MP, Matt Western, came into school to talk to us about his role and then to answer a wide range of questions about various aspects of citizenship, from food poverty in the UK to Climate Action, nature and the plastic pollution problem. We made notes as he spoke.

In English we had written persuasive letters after researching an issue of our choice. We presented the letters at a whole school assembly and Matt was very pleased to have a tour of our school which he really liked.
