Eco Schools

Eco-Schools Award

Eco-Schools is an international programme that guides schools on their journey towards sustainability and is focused around ten key environmental topics:

  • Water
  • Biodiversity
  • Energy
  • Global Citizenship
  • Marine
  • Healthy Living
  • Litter
  • School Grounds
  • Transport
  • Waste

Our Eco-Schools Council, which includes interested pupils, parents, staff and governors have decided to develop recycling provision, habitats and develop the sensational space.  All learners from across the school are involved in different environmental projects through curriculum themes across the year and we have achieved the Bronze and Silver Awards.

The experience of Eco Schools continues to unite pupils, parents, staff and governors in being more aware of the environment, saving water and energy, and also developing the school grounds. The pupils have enjoyed working alongside adults on an equal basis. They behave and discuss matters responsibly and are able to plan with adults. The ideas are often original, and self-esteem has been raised.  We are proud that we have made a difference to our school and the grounds.  We hope that our continued efforts help us to gain the prestigious Eco Schools Green Flag in the not too distant future.
