All pupils are responsible for throwing away their own litter.  However, if anyone see’s litter on the playground, it is everyone’s duty and responsibility (Eco-Council to monitor) to pick it up and throw it in the bin.  
Waste To recycle our food waste and to turn into compost where possible. KS1 children to have a special bin for afternoon playtimes where they throw their waste fruit into.  This bill will then be emptied by KS2 Eco-Councillors into the compost bin we have in the secret garden (this will also benefit Bird Club). On going. All KS1 children must ensure they are throwing their fruit into the correct waste bin.  KS2 Eco-Council members must then ensure that this is emptied into the compost bin in the secret garden at least once or twice a week.
