Like our School Council, the Eco-Council plays a significant role at Churchfield, and also for the children of tomorrow.
The Eco Council is made up of 12 children from Y6 – Y2. They meet on a regular basis to discuss and put into action, different ways of combating climate change and helping Churchfield to be greener. The Eco-Council began in 2022, and since then they have already made a huge impact in school. Visit our ‘Let’s Go Zero Carbon Pledge’ page for more information on some of the work that they do.

Meet The Team
Meet our Eco-Council! The Council meet on a regular basis with Mrs Sykes to think of ways we can help the planet and our community.
Paper & Plastic Recycling
The Eco-Council met and used their budget to fund designated paper (blue) and plastic (red) bins around school. They also met with our caretaker to discuss the most efficient ways to recycle.
Let's Go Zero Pledge
The Eco-Council are spearheading our ‘Let’s Go Zero’ campaign, to find out more, visit our ‘Zero Carbon Pledge’ page.
The Eco-Council have also been hard at work creating art using materials that would have otherwise have gone to landfill or been thrown away.
Our community garden is managed by Mr Thomas (our caretaker) and produces lots of fruit and vegetables each year that are then used in school!
In addition to the council, each class picks an Eco-Monitor to help (sometimes this will also be the council member).
Our Eco-Council is currently fundraising to have a ‘Food Waste Composter’ installed at school, so that any food waste can be resued on our community garden and provided to local residents. We also hold regular jumble sales on a Saturday morning, with all proceeds going to this project!
