Summerseat Methodist Primary are very proud to be a Silver award winning Eco school.  Our aim is to renew the award to obtain our goal of becoming a Green Flag school.  As a team we are aiming to demonstrate sustained progress in addressing the nine key areas which are listed below.  In the coming year, we hope to show our progression, through our curriculum and also the work of the Eco Council who are elected every Autumn term.

Nine Key Areas:

  • Energy
  • Water
  • Biodiversity
  • School grounds
  • Healthy Living
  • Transport
  • Litter
  • Waste
  • Global Citizenship

The Team

Following their election in Autumn term the 'Eco- Council' are very enthusiastic and have been busy planning events and strategies for the year ahead. We have come up with 3 key teams for this year: Energetic Energy; Wacky Water; Positive Pollution.

Energetic Energy

Wacky Water

Positive Pollution









Our main aim this half term is to ensure adults and children switch off lights and other electrical equipment when they are not being used.

Our main aim this half term is to encourage others to turn taps off throughout the school when they are not being used.

We aim to encourage others to not drop litter and if possible pick up at least 2 pieces of litter a day to keep our school clean and tidy.
