Our school Eco-Council was set up with student representatives from each class from year two to six. The school’s Eco Council meets regularly to formulate and then implement a school action plan for environmental improvement. Children discuss ways of improving their school environment from litter collection to establishing ways of conserving energy in the school. They also work alongside teachers, parents and governors to implement initiatives such as our school travel plan.
Eco-council members elect a Chairperson and Secretary who oversee the meeting format. Minutes are completed with agendas continuing student issues. This is a valued activity as it gives students a voice in a different setting where they are able to directly affect the sustainability of the school environment
