The school council provides helpful advice to their classes about how to care for our school and each other. We also consider our role in the community and how we can help others through the charities that we support and promote.
We make posters reminding people to show our Christian values and take care of property and equipment.
We also meet with the Eco Council once a month, report any improvements in the environment and take on board any suggestions. These meetings have been very successful
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.
We have created a number of planting areas around the school and look after these. We have set up a new raised bed and are growing fruit and vegetables.
Our Eco-Council presented in the summer term an Assembly to the Key Stage 2 children on Plastic Waste and the effects on our oceans.
Following this Assembly, the Eco Council devised an Eco Code and updated our Action Plan which includes eliminating plastic straws from our school, phasing out non biodegradable glitter and installing water saving devices .
