Planet Patrol for Students

Our new Key Stage Three & Four resources

This programme is dedicated to empowering young people aged 11 to 16 who are determined to make a positive and lasting impact on the world. This has been put together by teachers, for teachers.

It all starts with your students, and we believe that even at this age, they can contribute significantly. We focus on simplifying environmental issues and providing practical ways for them to get involved in implementing solutions.

To ensure our lessons are effective, we will conduct surveys at the beginning and end of the program, helping us understand its usefulness and adapt as needed.

Our curriculum covers six essential themes:

  1. Microplastics 

  2. Fast fashion

  3. Cleaning products

  4. Litter and local community 

  5. Water Quality 

  6. Period products

It’s our responsibility as adults to give the next generation the tools and information they need to make positive environmental action. We hope this lesson will help to equip your students.

This pack includes resources for theme one of our curriculum: Microplastics. The subsequent five themes will be added soon.

If you have any feedback or suggestions in relation to these resources, please get in touch with us at
