Our job is to help make Princess May more eco-friendly and sustainable; not just for us but for our local environment in general. We are currently working towards our goal of becoming a Green Flag Eco School.
In order to achieve this goal, our targets are:
- Reducing plastic consumption

Each member of the School Council has been elected through a democratic process, providing children with individual liberty to empower choices around their education. Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. Our school council at Princess May provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors help stamp out bullying. They are 'upstanders', not bystanders, and offer help to children who are having disagreements or feel they are being bullied.
