Eco Council

Welcome to the Eco Council!


This year we have another very dedicated council ready to do our bit to save our planet and make our school as environmentally friendly as possible.


Watch this space!

Autumn Term


This term, the Eco Council have focused on Food Waste in the school. We started with an assembly to raise awareness of Food Wastage in the school. We then took a questionnaire from each class asking their opinions on what we think we are wasting in the school and how we can reduce our food wastage. After this, each member of the Eco Council took it in turns to monitor the bins and see how much we are really wasting each day!

We are also working on a sustainable building project with a local building company who are building in the local community. We will be visiting the building site in May to see the project when it is half built and will then go later in the year to help plant som flowers and tress around the site to ensure it is green! 


We are also lucky enough to have the building company help us develop two green areas in our school. The Eco Council have started designing these areas which we will submit to the builders soon!


These areas do need a little TLC!

In order to help us reduce our food waste, we ran a poster competition! We have had some amazing entries and the Eco Council will take a vote on our favourites to display as large posters around the school.

Below are all the entries we had for the competition and the winners will be anounced in assembly on Friday!

(Please note - The names have been blanked out of the posters for data protection - We are super proud of all those who entered!)
