St. Paul’s, was assessed by the Eco-Schools’ panel and reached the required standard to receive our first Green Flag Award.
The Eco-Schools programme empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and can also lead to financial saving. Being an active member of the programme will be something our pupils will hopefully remember for the rest of their life.
The programme focuses on ten important environmental topics, of which, over the year, we focused on numbers 1, 2, 5, 7 and 9 (Please refer to our action plan for more details):
- Global Citizenship
- Healthy Living
- School Grounds
Now we have achieved our first Green Flag, and our school will continue in the programme to work on our focus areas and look for ways to promote other environmental issues and bring the whole school and its wider community on the journey with the aim to successfully retain the flag when reassessed.
St. Paul’s is excited about our eco-journey and where we are heading. We are focusing on the recycling of paper throughout the whole school. We are composting food waste into our rolly pig and mole. We are also keeping our school site clean, litter picking.
