Eco School Council 2017-18

Mainly Friday  12.30 till 1.00pm - Mrs Wray

As a Eco School Council we are enabling the children at St. Mary’s to have a voice.  Our aim is to make the school a better place for everyone.  We hold our meetings once a week initially and then once a fortnight and discuss a range of issues.

Following our meetings each of the representatives return to class to let them know about our discussions and to ask them for their comments or suggestions. At our following meeting we are able to discuss anything that has been brought up and take any necessary action.

This year in particular there will be a focus upon British Values and the Eco School council will be asked to deliver a presentation to school. We are planning on expanding our Playground Pals and this will be done over the year.

We seek to maintain the Green Flag for our eco - friendly school and there are a few areas on the action plan that we will focus upon this year. We will continue to take action to protect our environment and be environmentally friendly.

We enjoy our work and hope to continue to make a positive contribution to St. Mary’s School life.


Green Flag Award

We have we successfully gained the Green Flag award for the next two years.  Thank you to all those involved!

School Councillors 2017-18

Our school councillors are from year 2 to year 6, they are chosen through a voting selection by their own class. You can only be a School Councillor once. 

As a school council we have weekly meetings with our teacher Mrs Wray, to make sure everything is up to date and to see if anything needs to be done. We have recently signed the Pledge for Peace when we signed the Mayor came to visit. Every term we present a power point on British Values so that we are all aware of them. At St Mary's we are a very important part of school life, as it gives all of the children a voice, and a chance for pupil's ideas to be heard.

During each term we hold a HEAT Day where we discuss and raids issues around Eco and improve our outdoor environment.
