Working together for success

Eco Council

Welcome to Great Malvern's Eco Committee Page

 

At Great Malvern Primary School, we believe it is important for pupils to take ownership of their learning and have greater roles in school decision-making. With this in mind, we provide opportunities for children to play a role in making the decisions that affect them. We give pupils an active role in influencing decisions about these issues as well as in the implementation of these decisions and recognise that pupils have logical perspectives and opinions on issues that matter in the classroom, school and in the community. The British value of Democracy is upheld when pupils campaign to be Eco committee member for their class and then vote for the child they would like to represent them.

 

 

 

The Eco Committee are responsible for collecting paper recycling from each classroom and areas of the school 3 times per week. We are working hard to reduce the amount of rubbish we produce and purchased new recycling bins as part of meeting our action plan targets this year!
