Making a Difference!
Our school council are name the Heartwood Heroes as they work hard to Make a Difference to Heartwood Primary and our surrounding community.
We have two school council representatives from each of the KS1 and KS2 classes.
Mrs Dye leads the Heartwood Heroes.
The Heartwood Heroes have worked hard towards the Eco-School award to make sure we are reducing our impact on the environment and that we individually and collectively make a difference.
The Eco-Schools programme provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change within their school and have a positive impact in their wider community. The programme encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to work together to develop their knowledge and environmental awareness. Independent research into the Eco-Schools programme in England found evidence of the positive impacts on pupils, including increased confidence, development of leaderships skills, improved pupil well-being and behaviour and greater motivation at school.
Keep re-visiting this page to see what the Heartwood Heroes have been up to and the impact they are having.
The children in each class present why they would be the best candidate for the Heartwood Heroes. The class then vote for their representative to join the team.
