The Eco Team

Please Recycle

The Green Team motto is :


When we restart our "The Green Team" there will be 12 pupils representing Years 1,2, 3,4,5 and 6 along with 3 staff members.  

Our very own eco warriors, The Green Team, led by Mrs Stelling, have worked very hard to encourage us all to recycle and reduce. Due to their hard work we are delighted to say that our school has now qualified for the Bronze Eco Schools Award. Well done!

The Eco Team worked very hard last academic year to promote recycling at school, home and within their community. From September 2019 to March 2020, we had collected approx 6500 crisp packets for the Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme. That is a massive 32kg of waste which has been saved from landfill sites! We introduced more recycling schemes last school year, including The Writing Instrument Recycling Scheme. So far we have collected approx. 8kg of writing equipment which has been sent to the specialist recycle plant. Due to our recycling efforts, we have raised over £100 for charity.  Please support your children with our recycling schemes.

Health and Safety Ambassadors

Health and Safety in school(1)

These children represent their class and attend monthly meetings with Mrs Newton, School Business Manager.

The ambassadors regularly tour school, inside and out, looking out for any problems that they feel are a Health & Safety issue and they then report their findings back to Mrs Newton who will arrange to have these issues resolved.

Play Leaders

Play Leader

The Playleaders are a group of children who help to bring out and put away the play equipment during lunchtime play.

They teach and play games with the other children in the top playground and they help lonely children make friends.

Being a Play Leader helps the children to:

  • gain and build confidence and self esteem
  • develop a genuine sense of responsibility by helping others to improve playtimes
  • grow emotionally when offered responsibility
  • learn moral values, such as keeping to the rules, turn taking and sharing.
  • All children who have completed their jobs receive a certificate and a small token.

School Council

School Logo(1)

Norristhorpe School Council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils. Two pupil representatives from each class from Year 2 to Year 6 makes up the school council. We have a Chairperson who leads the meeting, a Secretary who takes the minutes, a time keeper and a treasurer.

The School Council meet fortnightly to discuss the views of their class, help to arrange fundraisers and feedback any issues in school from a pupil perspective. They also lead cohort and whole school assemblies to raise awareness of the charities that we support at school.
