Eco Council

Green Tree School Award - achieved from planting trees and holding the crisp recycling assembly.

January/ February 2019


You may have noticed on the field behind the Trim Trail are many different species of saplings, which have been planted by a range of year groups last year. There are still a few children left to plant their tree, which will be completed by the middle of March. 

Secondly, once we have been approved as a school, we will be starting a Crisp Recycling Scheme, which has been launched by Walkers Crisps. More information will be available from Eco Council in assembly in the next few weeks!


Following on from an assembly led by Eco Council, we will be starting the crisp recycling scheme. The large box can be found in the school hall and will be emptied once full. This will get us ever closer to the next Eco Award.

As the Big Dig is now well under way, several classes have started their tree planting on the school field behind the Trim Trail. We are hoping to create a safe haven for small mammals by planting these hedgerow species. Hopefully by the end of next week, all trees will be planted!

The Big Dig 18th - 30th November 2018


Earlier on in the year, Miss Walker was able to obtain 210 tree saplings from The Woodland Trust to be planted on the school grounds. They have since turned up (2nd of November) and now need to be planted! They will be planted in parallel to the trim trail and in our Forest School area. Each class will have the opportunity to plant a tree, with instructions included! This will be held between the 18th and the 30th of November. If you would like to help, don't hesitate to ask Miss Walker.


This will go towards the Bronze Green Trees Award, which Eco Society will be working hard to complete this year. 

October - November 2018


In the first term, each class teacher picked two children to be part of the Eco Council. The first meeting will be on the first week back (Friday 2nd November). This will be a chance for us all to introduce ourselves and understand what is important for the following year.

This year we will be aiming to get the Silver Eco Schools Award, by completing a Switch Off Day and a litter pick within the local community. 


If you have any ideas for the topic that we should first focus on, please let one of the Eco Council members know.

Bronze Award Certificate

February 2018


As part of Eco Council, we have now achieved our Bronze Award for the school. This has been achieved by having an active Eco Council which meets at least once a half term, creating an Environmental Review of the school and finally creating an Action Plan.

In order to achieve the Silver Award, as a group we need to monitor and evaluate what effects Eco Council has on the school, and ensure that we are informing and involving everybody. 

February 2018


After making a decision to have 'Electricity' as our first topic to gain the Bronze Award, we created an Action Plan. This all relates to a Switch Off week, which will be held in March. Next week we will be getting an electricity meter reading in order to compare this to the Switch Off week. 



Electiricity Action Plan

January 2018

There will be an Eco Council meeting on the 11th of January, in order to discuss the topic that we have chosen to use for the Bronze Award. 

After applying for the Green School Awards back in December for the introduction of Forest Schools and start of the Eco Award , we have been chosen by the KM group for an award. The awards ceremony will be in February!

24th November 2017


After an Eco Council meeting this lunchtime, we have now completed the Environmental Review, which is part of the Bronze Eco Award. As a group, we had to look at nine different topics and think of ways of improving these within school. 


In a few weeks time, we will be deciding on one topic to focus on, and then creating an action plan. 

November 2017

After selecting two children from each class to become Eco Warriors, we had our first Eco Council meeting. This was a chance for us all to introduce ourselves and understand what was important for the following year.

This year we will be aiming to get the Bronze Eco Schools Award. In order to do this, in our next meeting we will be drawing up an Environmental Review which relates to nine different topics: Biodiversity, Energy, Litter, Waste, Water Saving, School Grounds, Healthy Living, Transport and Global Citizenship. Once this has been completed, as a council we will need to choose one topic and create an action plan for it. 


If you have any ideas for the topic that we should first focus on, please let one of the Eco Council members know.
