Eco Committee

Our School Council is also our Eco-Committee, working to improve the sustainability of the school by building ‘greenness’ into the day to day life of the school.

Eco-schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey to help imbed these principles into school life. We currently hold our Silver Eco-Schools Award and are working towards achieving our Green Flag status.

The Eco Committee worked together to write an Eco Code to reflect our ongoing project on Waste:

  • Waste can be recycled
  • All that landfill is no good
  • Save the planet by reusing and recycling
  • Today we can make a difference
  • Everyone can do their bit

For the year 2020-2021 we focused on the following areas:

Autumn Term - Litter

Spring Term - Waste

Summer Term - Biodiversity 

Please see the link below to our Eco Council May meeting on Bio Diversity.  Our plans for the school grounds will be coming soon!
