Eco - Schools

Eco-Council are very fortunate to be working with Eltham Enviros, a team of parents dedicated to making the local area a more eco-friendly place.

Our Action plan encompasses seven key areas of responsibility: Water, Global Issues, Recycling, Littering, Energy & Transport, Recycle & Reuse and Food Waste. We want to raise awareness of each responsibility and shares ways we can all play our part. We are a solution focused group.

Our Eco-Council, which meets regularly, has representatives from Year 1 to Year 6.

In 2020-21 our Year 6 Eco Council members planted oak trees in Oxleas meadow as part of a national tree planting scheme.

Eco-Council were also involved with Eltham Enviros installing Step 1 of a Green Screen for our KS2 playground. Click here for Green Screen planning information

 

 

 

 

 

We think it is important to set a good example in school to help our environment and everyone should be involved. Everyone should be involved in reducing, reusing and recycling. We are working to further improve our recycling in school particularly with classroom and packed lunch waste. If we are environmentally friendly our planet will be preserved for the future as pollution is damaging our environment.

We use energy from the solar panels that were installed on rooves of our buildings which helps to reduce our carbon footprint.
