Eco Schools

What is Eco Schools?

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey. Eco-Schools is one of five environmental education programmes run internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).

There are 46 countries around the world which run Eco-Schools, linking more than 40,000 schools – from the UK to France, from Morocco to South Africa.

Eco-Schools is free and it makes tackling sustainable issues manageable and easy for all children’s centres and nurseries.

What we have done....

 We created an  “Action Team” including Anne Craske Pre-School Manager and the Eco-Schools Co-ordinator/Committee Member plus other Staff, Committee and involvement of some children.

  • Environmental Review was completed in August 2011
  • The “Action Plan” and “Eco Code” for the Pre-School were developed during the Autumn Term.
  • January 2012 - Awarded Bronze Standard!
  • July 2012 - Awarded Silver Standard!
  • September 2012 - attendance at Parish Council to discuss Travel Survey and Road Safety
  • April 2013 - Objectives complete. Unfortunately further progress to Green Flag standard is not practical in the Pre-School setting. 
  • The Pre-School will continue to strive to apply "Eco" principles in all that it does.
