The Eco council is a special kind of council, designed to enable the school to help the environment. At Barrowcliff School, pupils were all invited to apply to be part of the Eco Team. The team is made up of one elected pupil from each class who meets with the Eco co-ordinator, Mrs Lukehurst, regularly to discuss and plan how to improve both the Barrowcliff school environment and that of the wider world. The Eco-team members feedback the key highlights of their meetings to keep everyone informed of their plans.
We are at present working towards our Green Flag Award from the Eco schools organisation. Eco Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
