Eco Council

 
 

The school was last awarded its Eco Flag in June 2019 and this year we will be working hard to regain our status.  At the beginning of the year, representatives applied to become members of the Eco Council which has already met and decided that our school's focuses for the year will be outdoor learning, healthy living and continuing to develop biodiversity within the school grounds.

The Eco Council have been working very hard to encourage everyone in the school to use the recycling bins more efficiently and members of the Eco Council are responsible for emptying the waste into our central recycling centre on a daily basis.  Each class also has a box for recycling batteries. Energy monitors also check daily that we are turning off lights and putting computers on standby while we are out at break and lunch, and also remember to close the doors to keep the heat in.

We were also delighted to receive a School Pollinator Grant from Live Here Love Here and this year we will be working on trying to improve our school grounds for pollinators.

Our Eco Council members also encourage everyone to stay healthy. We will be running some events throughout the year to promote fitness and we will also encourage everyone to eat healthily.
