Eco Council

Our Eco Council has a pupil from each class representing their fellow peers from Year Three to Year 6. Each year, we hold a special election week where candidates are voted for by their class. Being part of the Eco committee is a great opportunity for our pupils to become more involved in the way our school is run and encourage our whole school community to be more environmentally friendly.

. This benefits the whole school, pupils, teachers, parents, and local community. It provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their strong feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

The role of the Eco councillors is to educate others and promote environmental friendliness within school by helping with the following tasks:
  • Being a student voice in regular meetings and feedback any relevant information to their class.
  • Taking suggestions and class votes from their class relating to discussions by the Eco council.
  • Having the responsibility to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
  • Organising events throughout the school year.
  • Leading school assemblies to deliver information to whole school.
  • Having links with the local community.
  • Research locally and globally to continuously strive to improve our school Eco-Friendly status.
  • Take part in gardening club.
All the Eco council representatives proudly wear a green jacket – this also makes them clearly identifiable around school.
