Eco Team includes representatives from each Key Stage 1 class. We meet regularly and we take part in whole school assemblies to tell the rest of the school about our plans and activities. During our assemblies other children can share their ideas. We also have an Eco Team noticeboard. Our ‘Eco Code’ was created by all the members of Eco Team and, is reviewed every year.

We complete an environmental review each year and make good decisions about what still needs to be done to improve our environment. These form our Eco Action Plan.
The children plan and participate in a wide range of activities. Electricity and Gas consumption are monitored regularly by the children who read the meters with the help of our Site Manager. We make signs to remind everyone about saving resources. Green Team make choices about which plants to grow, plant them and help to look after them. We now have an apple orchard, two grape vines and a wide range of flowers. We are growing lots of fruit and vegetables including strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, peas, beans, potatoes and mushrooms! Last summer we created a wild flower meadow in the long grass area of our school grounds – see the photographs below!
We were awarded our fifth Eco Schools Green Flag in July 2016.
