Thrive and achieve together!

Eco Team

Welcome to The Eco Team


The Eco Team is a group of children, with two representatives from each class, who meet every fortnight to discuss matters which are important to our pupils.


Each class, during their weekly class assembly, talk about key eco issues which are then recorded by their representatives. The reps bring these notes to meetings and we talk about ways in which we can improve the school. Representatives feed back to their classes by reading the minutes from the meeting. When decisions need to be made, children are asked to vote for their preferred choice. Our Eco Team therefore acts like a democracy, similar to the society we live in.


Occasionally, the Eco Team raises money for charity. Check back here again to find out how much money we have raised so far this year and to learn where the money has gone. The reps are also involved in the interview process for new staff, observe lessons and represent the school at key events.

Members of this year's Eco Team will be announced shortly.
