It’s official – Budleigh Salterton’s primary school is plastic free.
Youngsters from St Peter's Primary School were presented with the Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) award which recognises the work they are doing to reduce single-use plastics.
During a presentation, pupils got the chance to see 'Breakwater' - a documentary, created by Emma Askew of SAS, which features some of youngsters from St Peter's.
The school had to complete a number of objectives including identifying and eliminating single-use plastics, organising litter picks and writing to central government.
Pupils took part in an SAS beach clean in Budleigh organised by the school's eco leader Jemima Moore and Emma Askew.
