The Eco Council at Southmead Primary School was set up to raising the pupil’s awareness of sustainable development issues through the school, community and the world. It encourages our children to take an active role in how the school can be run for the benefit of the environment, highlighting the importance of social values.
Here at Southmead Primary School we currently hold the silver award and are actively working towards Green Flag recognition, which is an internationally acknowledged symbol for environmental excellence. Some of the initiatives our Eco Council has been promoting are around recycling, the school grounds, energy and litter.
Coming soon we have new recycling bins for the whole school to use in the dining hall which will reduce the amount of waste and help us recycle more!
We are also aiming to use the food waste from lunchtimes in our compost bins in the school grounds and help develop the schools gardens.
