Eco Council

Our Eco School!


At Sidemoor First School we are proud of our Eco achievements and have a real passion for making a difference to our environment. We take every opportunity to make use of our beautiful school grounds and have a love of outdoor learning. We believe our Eco work enhances our curriculum, improves our school and saves money and resources. Sustainability is at the heart of our school.   


All of our hard work has been recognised and we have been awarded the ‘International Eco Schools Green Flag Award’ for the third consecutive time! The children are very proud of their award and continue to build on their hard work and strive to improve year after year.


At the centre of our thinking and learning are nine important Eco topics:


  1. Energy
  2. Water
  3. Litter
  4. Recycling
  5. Transport
  6. Healthy Living
  7. Biodiversity
  8. School Grounds
  9. Global Citizenship


This year our main focus is Global Citizenship.


 Eco Committee




We have an important Eco Committee who are made up from children across the school from Reception to Year 4. The children have been elected by members of their own class and they take pride in attending Eco Committee meetings every half term. As an Eco Councillor the children go to meetings to discuss eco ideas, make suggestions and decisions and get involved in projects that the Eco Council run.


Something to think about....


If the Earth

were only a few feet in

diameter, floating a few feet above

a field somewhere, people would come

from everywhere to marvel at it. People would

walk around it, marvelling at its big pools of water

its little pools and the water flowing between the pools.

People would marvel at the bumps on it, and the holes

in it; and they would marvel at the thin layer of gas

surrounding it and the water suspended in the gas. The

people would marvel at all the creatures walking around the

surface of the ball, and the creatures in the water. The

people would declare it preciousbecause it was the only

one and they would protect it so it would not be hurt.

The ball would be the greatestwonder known, and people

would come to behold it, to be healed, to gain knowledge,

to know beauty and to wonder how it could be.

People would love it and defend it with their

lives, because they would somehow know that

their lives, their own roundness, could be

nothing without it. If the Earth

were only a few feet

in diameter
