Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.

At St Ursula’s we are very excited to be working towards our Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. We have set up a school Eco Committee that consists of children from Year 1 up to Year 6, who are voted in by their peers.

The main focus for Eco Schools this year will be:

  • School grounds
  • Biodiversity
  • Energy

Eco Schools Action Plan 2016-17

What we’ve been busy doing

  • Planting trees in the academy grounds that were gifted to us by The Woodland Trust
  • Year 4 recently took part in the RSPB Big Schools Bird Watch within the academy grounds
  • We took part in the ‘Switch off Fortnight’ initiative and from this, the Eco Committee decided to set up the Energy Detectives role. The children take responsibility for ensuring that classroom lights, whiteboard screens and taps are all switched off and the windows are closed.
  • We’re really pleased to have achieved the Eco Schools Bronze Award and are currently working towards the Silver Award – look out for updates!
