The Global Committee are working hard to link our school to the wider world – through our eco work and link with schools in India. An elected representative from each class meet on a regular basis to monitor and make further decisions about our global journey. The children greatly enjoy making decisions and informing and guiding the school towards our final goal.
The global committee also work on the Eco-schools programme.

Our current target areas are: Biodiversity, School Grounds and Global Citizenship.
We will are looking to improve our wildlife area and are discussing ways of fundraising for this area and environmental, wildlife and animal welfare causes.

In June 2022 we worked with Morrisons Community Champion to collect tins for local food banks and they kindly donated a voucher to spend on gardening supplies in store.
