Shottermill Junior School has achieved the Bronze Award for Eco Schools and has a dedicated Eco Council. Their job is to meet regularly and decide on the eco events and initiatives that should take place in the school.
The team have developed a system of 'Eco points', where each class is visited daily to check that they are not wasting energy at lunchtime and that class recycling bins are being used correctly. The Eco shield is awarded termly to the class with the most Eco points. The Eco Council also make sure that composting is being done and are keen to keep any litter at bay in the school grounds.
With the finishing touches being made to our action plan and procurement policy; the Silver Eco Schools Award is within our reach!
