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


Recycling at Hillcroft

  • All areas of the school actively recycle paper and cardboard, this is collected on a weekly basis.
  • Food waste from the school kitchen is also collected weekly to be recycled.
  • Fruit waste from fruit at playtimes is collected and composted on site.
  • We recycle second hand clothing with regular Bag 2 School collections
  • We recycle pens and have signed up to be the local ‘Bic Community Champion’
  • We recycle batteries and have signed up to The Big Battery Hunt
