Our Eco team leaders do a fantastic job of making our school more environmentally friendly. Led by Miss Hill and Miss Whitelegg, they meet regularly to discuss various events to encourage our school to continue to develop its commitment to environmental issues both locally and nationally. They lead assemblies to communicate their actions to the wider school and have recently become involved with the Travel Tracker programme to encourage more of our families to walk or cycle to school. As a team, they regularly look at how our school uses electricity, water and paper and are committed to making sure we continue to develop our recycle, re-use, reduce commitments.
