School Council


School Council / Eco Committee


The School Council for 2020 / 2021 have been working towards Eco Schools status and have formed an Eco Committee. The committee consists of 2 children from each class (with 2 Year 6 children representing Reception). At the beginning of the year the children came up with a development plan which had 3 key aims.

  • Waste
  • Energy
  • Marine


The Committee have worked very hard through these difficult times and have achieved Silver Status. They have done this by:-

  • Promoting a No-Tech day in school and at home - this also raised money towards a recycled bench
  • Speaking to each class about recycling
  • Asking the council for fruit / food bins and speaking to caretaker about emptying them
  • Promoting the turning off of lights around school
  • Promoting the use of recycled exercise books
  • Promoting the use of zero single use plastic in school
  • Signing up to Plastic Free School - Surfers Against Sewage


This hard work will continue into 2021/2022 with the aim of achieving the next award.
