Green Team

Welcome to the Overleigh Green Team! We believe 'Small actions make BIG differences'

Pupils are the driving force behind our  Eco-Schools – alongside staff and governors, they form and lead an Eco-Committee and help to carry out audits to assess the environmental performance of the school.

Our Green Team have been working hard to spread the word about recycling and what we can do to help in our school. We have created a 'pen recycling point' to encourage plastic waste recycling of everyday items required for our learning.


Royal Society for the Protection of Birds - RSPB

As a school we took part in the 'Big School Birdwatch' - the largest citizen science project for schools. We shared our collected data with the RSPB to support the research of the protection of nature.
