What is Eco-Council?

The Eco-Council is a group of pupils who meet each month to discuss eco-friendly and environmental issues within school which prepares children to live their future lives with consideration for global issues. There are two eco-councillors from each years group of Y1 - Y6.

Why do we have an Eco Council?

To ensure our school is eco-friendly and prepares pupils to live with reflection of the environment.

To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.

To discuss and raise issues related to the environment.

How do I become an Eco Councillor?

At the beginning of each year, pupils can apply to become an Eco-Councillor. Key Stage 1 pupils discuss with their teacher why they would like to become an Eco Councillor and teachers choose the successful applicants. Key Stage 2 pupils who want to apply to become an Eco-Councillor, present themselves to the Key Stage 2 pupils with the reasons why they would make a good councillor.  Then pupils then vote for their favourite eco councillor.

What have the Eco-Council done this year?

Held a clothing recycling scheme and used the money raised from this to purchase seeds which the children planted around the school grounds.

Planted seeds saplings which were donated by The Woodland Trust to create a new woodland area to co-incide with the new school being built.

Took part in and won the 2023 Rainhill Scarecrow competition.

Collected and recycled used batteries.
