Eco Council

The Guardian Angels’ Eco-Schools scheme was established to help our children become more effective citizens by encouraging them to take responsibility for the future of their own environment. It is not about environmental excellence, it is about our school starting to look at how it affects the environment and how this is decided upon and can be managed.


Pupils take key roles in decision-making and participate in reducing the environmental impact of the school. In this way, Eco-Schools extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible attitudes both at home and in the wider community.


One element of the Eco-School Programme is the setting up of an Eco-Council – the driving force of the project. This is made up of pupils, staff, governors and the involvement of all members of the school community. The Eco-School committee process offers a useful model for successful communication and decision-making.

One of the advantages of taking part in Eco Council is the improvements that are made to the school environment, both in school and within the school grounds. By encouraging and supporting pupils to take responsibility for the environmental management of their school, children will develop and build a sense of responsibility for their surroundings.


Eco-Schools develop a caring school community where the ideas of others are valued and action is taken in response to these ideas. The school becomes a place to make positive changes and to make a difference.


The eco council meet to discuss eco issues and changes they would like to see around the school.  The eco council are dedicated and enthusiastic individuals who work hard to improve and develop the school for the better.
