The Eco-Schools Awards
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 your child will remember for the rest of their life. The programme focuses on ten important environmental topics:
- Global Citizenship
- Healthy Living
- School Grounds
The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning. You can work up to Green Flag level by achieving Bronze and Silver awards which are self-accredited stepping stones along the way. Each Eco-School around the world follows the same international Seven Steps. Eco-Schools England have adapted the Seven Step criteria to make sure that early years settings can work towards and achieve their internationally recognised Eco-Schools Green Flag Award.

The Eco-Schools Committee
Our Eco-School Committee is made up of School Council members from KS1 and Eco-warriors from EYFS – one boy and one girl are elected 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 keeping Cassiobury Infant & Nursery School looking clean and litter free and help to litter pick on the field and playground.
