THE ECO COUNCIL

 

Our Eco Council is made up of one pupil from each class from Year 2 – Year 6  who are chosen by the class teacher. The aim of the Eco Council is to help the school develop as an Eco School. We meet once every half term

Here is this year’s Eco Council:

 

 

Why do we have an Eco Council?
The Eco Council is an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get more involved in the way Oakfield Primary is run and help it to be environmentally friendly. The Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. 

 

Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is supported by  adult Eco-Coordinators, but led by pupils.

 

 The school has so far successfully applied for and been awarded 2 Eco School awards, Bronze and Silver. To achieve these the school has had to show the Eco Council is active. This has been done by holding regular meetings, completing environmental reviews, creating an action plan and using this to  raise awareness and involve the whole school community in becoming more environmentally friendly Initiatives have included energy surveys - leading to monitors, poster competitions, litter picks and themed assemblies led by the Eco councillors. In 2018  raising awareness about plastic waste  and the theme of reduce, reuse recycle the school built a greenhouse from waste plastic bottles that had been collected by family and friends.
