Message from ECO-SCHOOLS


We reviewed your application and noted the following:

It’s fantastic that you have such a large Eco-Committee in your school, it shows that your pupils clearly care about our planet and all plants, animals, and insects that live on it. Giving pupils responsibility for recording meeting minutes not only allows them to take ownership of the Eco-Schools programme, it will also help them develop their listening, note-taking, and summarising skills! Your Environmental Review is packed with comments, and this is exactly what our team enjoys seeing. It’s clear that completing it provided your Eco- Committee with plenty of ideas for creating an impactful Action Plan. Your Action Plan is varied and substantial, containing impactful activities for each of your 3 chosen Eco-Schools’ topics on Energy, Litter and Waste. We love the variety of activities contained in your Action Plan; it perfectly demonstrates that there are several different approaches to creating positive change. You have skillfully embedded environmental issues into your curriculum, using these issues to engage pupils and enrich their learning. We enjoyed hearing about your ‘No Pen Day’ this sounded a very educational experience! Your Eco-Committee have used a wide variety of methods to inform their school community about their work including newsletters and posters, this shows they take pride in their achievements and are working hard to involve and educate all around them. We hope all staff members involved in your Eco-Schools work take immense amounts of pride from the parental quote uploaded. Your hard work and dedication has inspired young people and empowered them with the belief that they can positively impact our planet – this is something incredibly special. Your greatest success is a brilliant achievement. Your reduction in litter has been a huge success! It’s clearly something that pupils will be proud of and leaves a great legacy to build upon. Your Eco-Code is very punchy, clear and easy to digest for those that see it. It’s a direct call to action. We love this! Thank you so much for submitting such a terrific application. We have loved reading about your journey and are incredibly impressed by all you have achieved. We have no hesitation in awarding you an Eco-Schools Green Flag with Merit, congratulations!
