Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). It connects 15 million children, young people and educators through sustainable development education and is the biggest learning network in the world
Eco-Schools is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability. It is an environmental management tool, a learning resource and a recognised award scheme, which empowers children and young people to take action towards an economically, socially and environmentally just world.
The initiative provides a framework for learning and action, which affords a wealth of opportunities for linking sustainable development education, global citizenship and outdoor learning. Eco-Schools weaves these elements together through the everyday curricular work undertaken by schools and encourages closer links between schools and the communities around them.
Our progress so far:
- We have been working hard on our chosen eco topics; energy, sustaining our world and litter for the last two years and we are now ready for assessment for our green flag renewal.
- We are in the process of designing a poly tunnel for the school grounds so that each class can grow their own crops.
- Our Mini-beast Hotel and wildlife garden are still going strong and encouraging insects to visit our school.
- During SHANARRI Squad, our children have been learning about sustainability and how we can make our grounds a safe place for wildlife.
