For our Eco learning, we are a member of the Eco-Schools programme. This is an international initiative that encourages pupils to engage with environment and sustainable development issues. The Eco-Schools programme has a seven-step framework that we are using to introduce, manage and complete environmental actions in our school and local community. It will engage, motivate and empower all our pupils to care for our planet now and throughout their lifetimes.
The ten Eco topics of the programme are Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy living, Litter, Marine, School Grounds, Transport, Waste and Water.
On completing the seven steps throughout the school year, we will submit our online application in July for a Green Flag Award. The Award will acknowledge, reward and celebrate the ecological achievements of our pupils.
Through the school's curriculum, the children will explore key concepts and consider the following concept questions.
Alongside each of these key concepts, the children will also consider second order concepts such as climate change, diversity, responsibility, fair trade and sustainability.
Engagement in the Eco-schools programme also contributes
to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
