What is ECO – Schools?

Joining the ECO-Schools programme makes tackling sustainable issues manageable and easy for any school, what’s more, by addressing environmental issues at school and reducing waste, we’ll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.
How does it work?
Once registered, we follow a simple seven-step process which helps us to address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity.
Children are the driving force behind ECO-Schools – they lead the ECO-Committee and help to carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of our school.
In conjunction with the rest of the school and the wider community, it’s our pupils who decide the environmental themes they want to address and how they’re going to do it.
ECO-Schools can fit into virtually all aspects of the curriculum and help to make learning, both inside and outside the classroom, fun and engaging.
