Global Action Team
Formally known as the Eco Action Team, The Global Action Team has been focused on Spellbrook School improving our outdoor areas, helping the environment and helping towards the Global Goals. These are a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".
Our group is made up of children from every year group whom are enthusiastic and keen to make changes. They help in leading assembles and having regular meetings at lunch times.
Each term there is a focussed Global Goal and throughout the school we help teach and highlight the needs of the goal. We seek to find ways to help and make small changes to combat change and set school challenges.
