Project Leaders: TBC






About This Project:

We are looking at ways we can reduce the amount of electricity we use as a school. This will be good for the environment whilst saving our school money!


We are focusing on easy ways to save energy at the moment. We worked out that it costs us school approximately £2.08 a day in electricity to have the lights on in a classroom for the whole school day. This would work out at approximately £2,824 a year to light all 7 classrooms for a whole school year for 7 hours a day! That's not including the hall, staff room, office, library, cupboards, toilets and corridors!


Our missions is to save our school some money by reducing the amount of electricity we use.





April 2024 - 3rd 'Switch It Off' Week Planning

Our current School Council are planning to run another 'Switch It Off' week. As part of this we would like to run an assembly to make the school aware of the importance of saving electricity and ways they can do so in school and at home.

June 2023 - St. John's 2nd 'Switch It Off' Week

We ran another successful 'Switch It Off' Week during our summer term! All the classes did so well switching off their lights.

We added an extra challenge suggested by Theo to also switch off our smart boards in class whenever they were not being used!


July 2022 - 'Switch It Off' Week Launch


We have launched our switch it off week! It will run from Thursday 7th July to Thursday 14th July. The class who have had their lights switched off for the longest amount of time will win an extra play time and chocolate/sweets!


June 2022 - 'Switch It Off' Week!

As a school council, we have voted to run a 'Switch It Off' week. We are currently planning this and hoping it can be held in a few weeks time before the end of the school year.


May 2022 - Installing Signs!

Our School Counsellors went around school at lunch time to attach signs next to all the light switches. We hope this will encourage teachers and children to turn off the lights when they don't need them on.



May 2022 - Identifying Light Switches!


Our project leaders have been around the school to locate all the light switches we have in our classrooms, corridors and toilets. We have 33 altogether! We are going to put up signs next to the switches to remind adults and children to turn off lights when they don't need them on.
