Eco Committee

  • Mrs Stead

The Eco Committee aims to develop environmental sustainability in our school. The committee includes two representatives from each KS2 class, a teacher and lunchtime supervisor.

The committee members have weekly routines where they recycle paper, reuse paper, compost tea bags, recycle plastic, tin and glass, collect batteries, stamps, crisp, biscuit wrappers and pens for recycling.

The committee runs a big project each year. Recently this has included learning about bees, plastic waste and climate change. We have just added 300 trees – one per pupil – to our school site. 

Our next project is looking towards adding solar panels to the school roof.
