Eco council

Eco-Schools develops pupils' skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as whole host of other benefits.

The Eco-Council is made up of two pupils from each class from Year R to Year 6 who are chosen by the class to represent them. The aim of the council is to continue to develop the school as an Eco-School. So far we have reached bronze status.

Our school is passionate about recycling and we are working closely with Hereford Community Recycling. We collect batteries, old glasses, crisp packets, mobile phones, saucepans, foil, cans, books, dvd's and even unwanted bras. These items are collected and help to raise money for local charities.

We have regular litter picks around our village. Currently we are running a turn off the engine initiative, encouraging people to turn off their car engine whilst waiting outside the school.

We actively encourage children to raise any ideas of what we can do next.
