Eco-Schools Silver Award

Eco-Schools Silver Award

To help us in our quest to become a ‘Sustainable school’ we have been working hard towards the Eco-Schools Awards. We have already gained the Bronze and now recently gained the Silver award. Here are details of what we needed to do to achieve the silver award.

The Silver award criteria focuses on strengthening pupil leadership and whole school involvement while the school starts to work on at least one of the Eco-Schools topics in depth.


Silver Award criteria:

Eco-Committee

  • The school has identified an Eco-Committee consisting of pupils and adults which meets at least once every half term.
  • Pupils share the responsibility with adults for running the committee (the level of responsibility expected depends on the age and ability of the pupils involved).
  • The Eco-Committee includes a parent and/or governor representative.
  • Records are kept of meetings.

Environmental Review

  • The Eco-Committee has produced a detailed Action Plan
  • The plan contains timescales, targets and who is responsible
  • The Eco-Committee has shared the plan with the rest of the school

Linking to the curriculum
