The Eco-Schools Awards

The Eco-Schools programme unites young people to make realistic but dynamic change, creating positive impacts for our planet right now. The Eco Council follows a simple, seven-step framework that empowers young people to make a difference in their school, local community and beyond. Schools connect their activities to three or more of the Ten Eco-Schools Topics. These topics break large, global issues like climate change into more manageable and directed themes that prompt young people to consider environmental changes that they can make in their school and everyday lives.

1. Biodiversity 6. Marine
2. Energy 7. School Grounds
3. Global Citizenship 8. Transport
4. Healthy Living 9. Waste
5. Litter 10. Water

The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning. In July 2022 Cassiobury Infant & Nursery School achieved it’s first Green Flag award. You can read the judges comments by clicking this link.

The Eco-School Committee

Our Eco Council is made up of 20 members consisting of one boy and girl from each class; the committee meet at least once a month and include children from Nursery to Year 2. At committee meetings we discuss the school Eco Action plan and collaboratively work towards achieving the targets. Eco members take pride in the work that they do and feed back to the rest of their class the key points of discussion after each Eco Council meeting; sometimes they talk in assembly about projects that they are working on.

Environmental Review Nov 2022

The Eco Council carried out an environmental review to identify areas of strength and points for development linked to the ten topics. We ansered all the questions and then added up our score. This information helped us to see what we are already achieving, and what we can do better; you can read our review below.
