Here, at St.Hugh’s, we encourage children to think about their environment both inside the school and beyond to the wider community. Our impact on the world and its resources are considered as part of curriculum studies and form the agenda for our School Eco Council. The Eco council consists of eight elected KS2 pupils, a parent volunteer and a member of staff.
We currently hold Silver award status within the national Eco-Schools Scheme.
We are always grateful for any support from parents and carers who would be willing to get involved in any of our litter picking or gardening activities.
Our children have been working with the Police and Local Authority to improve traffic congestion. Please see our pictures below of our children doing their traffic survey and some of our children taking part in our climate change workshop.

Eco-Council Trip to the Recycling Centre
Our Eco-councillors have been to visit a local recycling centre with Miss Shaw. They learned all about how materials are recycled and what they can be used for. They will be encouraging all of us to recycle our rubbish so that we can be as eco-friendly as possible.
Great British Tidy Up
Eco councillors take part in the Great British Tidy Up Weekend, organised by Keep Britain Tidy.
The Eco-council visited Bidston Recycling Centre to learn all about recycling and how they can recycle more rubbish at St. Hugh’s. They had a really interesting time and came back with lots of ideas. Thanks to Miss Shaw for organising the trip.
