The Eco Committee works hard to encourage all pupils and staff to be eco-friendly.  The committee have been working really hard and helped the school achieve two green flags!

The Eco Committee have a No litter policy. If you find a piece of litter you pick it up! Our Eco Committee are very committed to their roles, they give up some of their lunch times and breaks to shredding or recycle the plastics.

We meet every Thursday morning, anything we would like to discuss we put in the eco-suggestion box before the meeting.  During our meeting the Chairperson leads the meeting and the secretary writes up the minutes.

At the beginning of the school year we carried out an Environmental Review and then set our action plans which can be found on our Eco-notice board.

As part of our work, we also discuss how we can raise awareness of fairtrade products both in school and in the local community.
