Eco Council

Welcome to our Eco Council Page


We are thrilled to announce that this week we have elected our new Eco Council, who are all passionate about making our school as Eco-friendly as possible!


This year our Eco Council will be made up of children from our Y3/Y4 bubble and our Y5/Y6 bubble who will meet separately each week to discuss how we can make some positive changes in our school and encourage similar changes at home too.


We are also excited to be working alongside 'Eco Schools' to gain our 'Green Flag'


Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.

For over 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag.

Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.


We are so excited to get started on our Eco journey, with our first meetings taking place next week.
