Eco Schools

Eco Schools is a national and now international programme that helps to embed sustainability in to the life and ethos of a school and the surrounding community.

The Eco Schools process is holistic. It works by involving the whole school - pupils, teachers, non-teaching staff and governors - together with members of the local community - parents, the local authority, the media and local businesses.

Eco Schools offers your school:

  • An opportunity to make environmental issues a part of the life of the school
  • An opportunity to help develop young people's decision-making skills
  • Curriculum materials and ideas for projects and events
  • Access to a network of support agencies
  • Links with other schools in the UK and Europe
  • A prestigious award
  • Opportunities for local and national publicity
  • Potential for financial savings
