Eco Council


Caversham Primary School


1. Turn off smart boards, TV’s and computers when not in use.

2. Think before you switch!  Do we need the lights on today?

3. Walk to school if and when you can.

4. Recycle paper in appropriate bin in the classroom.

5. Use less foil/plastic in lunch boxes.  Ideally none!

6. Give batteries to Mrs S Emmott in the Computer Suite for recycling.


The Eco Council is responsible for making sure we save energy and promoting sustainability.

They go round classrooms to reward those teachers who, where possible have turned off their lights, I.W.B. They also have the responsibility of ensuring they or their teacher turns off lights etc. everytime their class leaves the classroom. Weekly meter readings will be taken by Yr 5’s and the school’s energy consumption plotted.

We are also going to be liaising with our fellow eco councils in local schools to share what we are doing and implement any good practise we see.

And of course there is the allotment, our school environment……so we are going to be very busy.
