The Eco Action Team (Eco-schools)
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.
The Eco-Schools programme is focused on nine key topics. These are:
Eco-Schools follow a simple seven-step process which helps them to address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity.
Pupils are the driving force behind Eco-Schools – they form and help lead the Eco-Committee and help to carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of the school. In conjunction with the rest of the school and the wider community, it’s the pupils (from Y2 to Y6) that decide the environmental themes they want to address and how they’re going to do it. They are supported in their efforts by the school’s Science Leader.
