The school council provides helpful advice to their classes about how to care for our school and each other.
We make posters reminding people to behave well and take care of property and equipment , also to keep people safe e.g ‘’Beware of wasps ‘ posters in the summer.
We meet the Eco Council once a month, report any improvements in the environment and take on board any suggestions. These meetings have been very successful
We let the Premises Officer know of any problems with cloakrooms, toilets and wash basins.
We meet with outside agencies like NSPCC representatives and the School meals service.
We give out “You’ve been spotted….” cards to children who are ‘caught’ doing the right thing without being asked. We decided that we should celebrate the good at Manorfield.
Eco-Schools is an international award that recognises when schools are making considerable achievements in being an eco-friendly environment which prepares children to live their future lives with consideration for global issues.

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Eco Schools Silver Award. We submitted what we have been doing in school to reduce, reuse and recycle.
New initiatives are the paper recycling team who collect paper at lunchtimes, raising whole school awareness by delivering assemblies and the litter picking team who help to keep the school grounds clean and tidy.
We have also introduced new Green bins which are situated on the playgrounds to collect waste fruit and vegetables which we will recycle into compost for our use.
Our Eco-Council recently presented an Assembly to the Key Stage 2 children on Plastic Waste.
