Every year each class votes for one or two representatives to be part of our Eco-Council and is made up of 8 dedicated pupils with a real passion to help protect our planet.
Our Eco-Council meets on a regular basis and decides on projects to carry out within our school to help us to become more eco-friendly. These projects are linked to the areas of litter, waste, energy, water, the school grounds, bio-diversity and global perspective. They are designed to make realistic but dynamic change, creating positive impacts for our planet now.
In July 2022 we achieved the Eco Schools Green Flag award, with distinction. Eco-Schools is an international education programme that prompts young people to explore sustainability and climate change and take action.
Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “Earning an Eco-Schools Green Flag Award takes passion, commitment and a desire to make a difference. Pupils should be proud of their great work. They’re an inspiration and it makes us feel heartened and positive about the future of our planet.”
Our current Eco-Council has so much enthusiasm and each one of them has a real passion to help protect our planet. Their current projects include taking part in ‘The Great British Spring Clean’ by arranging a local litter pick and recycling old crisp packets into blankets for the homeless.
