Welcome to the ECO Committee
The Year 6 members of our Eco Committee have created a fantastic PowerPoint presentation to introduce themselves and their roles. This has been shared across the school in our virtual assemblies and we would like to share it with you too.
What we are doing in 2021
The ECO Committee have their bronze award!!
Congratulations to our ECO Committee who have recently been awarded their Bronze Award for all their hard work over the past 18months. We have successfully met the criterion which includes establishing an ECO Committee (and maintaining it even during the pandemic), creating an action plan and sharing this with the whole school. We have lots of new ideas that we will be working on to help us move towards our Silver Award and we will be looking for new recruits soon!
During the most recent lockdown, we have still been busy with our ECO Committee activities in school and at home:

We are pleased to announce a new school-wide and ECO Committee project...
Thank you to everyone that took part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch this year, the results are in! The blackbird, last year’s number one, has switched to second place. The Woodpigeon is now in the top spot. It’s the largest and commonest pigeon, making its home in fields, woods, parks and gardens.

Our Action Plan in 2019-20 focused on these three areas
Although our plans were disrupted by lockdown in 2020, our members and school community still enjoyed various activities and helped us to carry on with some of our plans:
