In 2015/16, members of the School Council also worked very hard to achieve both the Bronze and Silver Eco Awards, and want to keep working towards the Gold Award. Initially led by Mrs Cairns, this initiative is now being taken further by Miss Steek.
Mrs Lodge was also invited to be the Eco Governor and attends these meetings. Together they created an Eco School Action Plan which explains how Backworth Park can be more eco-friendly. The plan was displayed on their Council Notice Board and was shared by Council Members in a whole-school assembly. They created an Eco Code that was signed by everyone and is displayed in every classroom. Each class has a Light Monitor and certain members of the Council monitors our monthly energy consumption. In the Spring Term the Council held a Swap Shop where children brought in toys and books to swap for others.
