Our Eco Council is made up of 14 children - 2 children from every year group in school from children in Reception through to Year 6. The children are asked to create a poster explaining why they feel they would make a good Eco Council representative and are then voted in by their peers. It is an opportunity for the children to get involved in helping Stanton Primary School to be more environmentally friendly. Our Eco Council representatives develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is their responsibility to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of the pupils they represent (their class peers).
Well done to the elected members of our Eco Council:
What Do We Do?
Members of the Eco Council take part in discussions and votes and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or to take class votes relating to discussions we have in Eco Council meetings. Members meet once a half-term with Mrs Bunniss to discuss their ideas and to work through the Eco Council programme. Follow the link below for more information on the Eco Council Programme.
Please watch the short video below to find out more about how Eco Schools works.
This year’s Eco Council have been working through the seven steps to Green Flag success and have completed steps one and two. We are now creating an action plan based on the findings of our environmental review.
