Highfield Eco & School Council!
At Highfield, we strive to ensure we are looking after our environment and community as much as we can. We are always thinking of ways we can improve school in order to help the world around us. We are trying to recycle as much as we can, including stationary, printer cartridges, paper and other packaging.
We are working with Living Streets and their Walk To School Scheme to try and encourage more children to walk to school or park their car further away and walk. The children will record how they get to school each day and if they walk to school twice a week, then they will earn a badge at the end of each half term.
Each class has two Eco Councillors - one head and one deputy. We have a number of meetings throughout the half term that our councillors are invited to attend and share their ideas on a project or any new ideas on how we can improve the school and make it more eco friendly.
Keep checking the page for pictures of what we've been up to!

The year 6 school council representatives led a project for the Book Bus Foundation Charity. This involved collecting books and raising money for children in Zambia. They did a fantastic job and collected hundreds of books as well as raising £150. Well done to the whole school community - another example of you all showing CARE.
The year 6 school councillors drafted the letter below:
The school council have been gathering pupil voice from KS1 and KS2 children about the things that children LOVE about Highfield. Please see the overviews below - typed and presented by the year six school councillors.
The school council also drafted an email to parents/carers to share this information.
