Eco Council



Welcome to ECO 2021-2022


We have a very exciting academic year ahead of us!

Meet our 2021-2020 Eco Council!

To remember the 2 year anniversary of the start of COVID in the UK, Eco council scattered some forget me not seeds around school. We look forward to watching them grow and helping us remember what we have been through.

Litter picking around school

Well done Melia for being an Eco Superstar!

You have worked so hard planting vegetables, flowers and seeds. Well done for looking after our environment and spending time outside. Great work! 

Thank you Tobias for helping to keep our planet clean and safe! What great work you are doing by picking up all the rubbish off the floor! Thank you for protecting our planet and the animals! You are a superstar!

Looking for some inspiration to get motivated to spend more time outside? Look no further!

Even though its winter there are still lots of things you can do outside to help pass the time, enjoy the wildlife around you and help support nature! Here are a few of my favourite suggestions!

We would love to see and share your outdoor experiences. If you are happy for us to add your photos onto the school website please email them to:


Thank you Tijan!

Wow! Thank you so much for choosing to litter pick in your own time! What a super star you are! We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU on behalf of everyone in your community! What a difference you make! Well done!

Recycle your pens here!

We are now collecting pens to take to be recycled to help reduce the amount of plastic waste we produce as a school. We accept any kind of pens, felt tips, highlighters, biros...  If you have any old pens at home that no longer work please bring them into school to be recycled. Eco Council have set up recycling points in each classroom so that no pens get missed!

Thank you!
