Eco council

The Eco-Schools programme improves the environment, saves money and brings international recognition. We are proud to have achieved the highest Eco-Schools status – we are a green flag school, having ben renwed again this year with NO areas for improvement!

Children are the driving force behind our achievement – they lead the eco-committee and have helped to carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of our school. Through consultation with the rest of the school and the wider community pupils decided which environmental themes they wanted to address and how they were going to do it.

Eco-Schools is a great way of introducing environmental topics to our children, whilst developing a much more creative learning environment for everyone.

Eco-Schools provides real in-school issues, and also encourages scientific review and data analysis. Undertaking Eco-Schools has enabled pupils to understand how different issues are linked together, i.e. the connections between transport and pollution or management of the school grounds and increased biodiversity. 

 

Eco Council are planning some exciting things this year! 

If you have any questions or suggestions let your friendly Eco Councillor know (there are two from each class) and we can discuss it at the next meeting!

 

During Waste Week, we focussed on reducing food waste.

Check out these useful links with information and tips on how to use leftovers!

Did you Know?

At Glenfrome, we collect writing materials (pens, pencils, highlighters etc.) to be recycled. You can bring them in from home or office collections which means less going to landfill and money donated to charity! 

The Scrapstore in St. Werburgh's collects oral care products and crisp packets that are recycled to make useful products and Tesco is now collecting soft plastics (which can't usually be recycled)
