Eco-council

The Eco-council has now been running for 7 years. It allows the children at the school to have a say in issues concerned with sustainability and their environment.

Years 1 to 6 are each represented by two class members who are elected at the beginning of the school year.

We meet at least once every half term to discuss how the school can become involved in local, national and global issues. We have so far achieved Eco-Schools’ bronze and silver awards.

Some of our most successful events have been:

• ‘Swap Its’ 

• Village litter picks

• Healthy food evenings

Our Eco-Code is displayed in every classroom and in the foyer – where you can also see photos of our Eco-Councillors; minutes of the last meeting and photos of some of our events.

This year we plan to do some fund raising to buy the school a compost tumbler as well as monitoring our recycling and energy usage.
