Marton Primary School
Pupils’ efforts to reduce carbon footprint of school brings big rewards

Being a very small school, all staff and the 97 pupils are aware of the carbon saving efforts at Marton Primary School.

There are just four classes and Head Teacher Ben Stephenson and Senior Teacher Naomi Maguire go the extra mile to ensure that the children have a strong voice in determining the energy saving processes.
It was the youngsters who insisted on changing their lunch break time so as not to prolong meals being warmed by an electric food warmer – pupil power in action!
The school has made some impressive savings, reducing energy consumption by 30% between 2011 and 2014 and the fact that they have 100% LED lighting throughout is estimated to save 12 tonnes of C02 per year.
