In October 2015 we formed an Eco Council. The job of the council is to create a plan that will lead to our school being awarded the Bronze Eco Schools Award. This would mean that we take environmental and sustainability issues really seriously across all aspects of school life.
To gain the award we need complete a series of tasks:
1. Set up the council. (Done)
2. Complete an environmental audit (Done – see below)
3. Turn the review into an action plan (Done – click Eco Council Action Plan, March 2016 to access)
4. Turn the action plan into action by rolling it out across the school (Summer 2016)
Please follow the Eco Council Blog for updates.
