At Baildon Primary we take the environment seriously. We have set up an Eco council as we are working towards Eco School status. The council is changed every 12 months so that children are given the opportunity to be a part of it.
The Eco-Schools scheme gives the children the insight of how their actions as a citizen effect the environment around them. Being an eco school means looking at how our school impacts upon the environment and how this is decided upon and can be managed.
Last year pupils on the eco council worked with a local environmental group and carried out a litter pick. The litter pick was first conducted within the school grounds, then outside in the local community. The children then created posters to put up around the school and local community reminding people of how to dispose of rubbish appropriately.
