Case Study

 

Environmental Education

A range of support and workshops for schools including subjects of Eco Awards, Fairtrade, Sustainability and Climate Change.

 

Support for your school

We provide whole school support on a number of different topics, whether it’s to help introduce the start of an environmental journey in school, or change culture in school to be an ‘outdoor school’.

We provide support, advice, workshops, assemblies as well as staff training in the following areas:

 

Eco-Schools

The Eco-School Awards are a fantastic way to gain formal recognition for your school for the environmental work you do. This “Keep Britain Tidy” initiative is suitable for all schools no matter where you are on your environmental journey.

As a result of our extensive experience teaching sustainability in schools we are in a position to give vital support for your school, both staff and pupils, in how to achieve Eco-School status. This includes the process a school needs to go through, what you need to implement in school, and also interactive workshops and problem solving for different topics involved.

We are pleased to offer training for your Eco Committee, an introduction to Eco Schools for your school, plus interactive workshops on all Eco Schools topics such as waste, energy use, water use and healthy eating.

Green Plans

Like any organisation schools have to manage budgets and cut costs.  Resources such as raw materials, energy and water, and the disposal of waste are becoming increasingly expensive and draining on schools’ financial resources.   The School Green Plan will assess current resource consumption and waste production with the aim of identifying cost saving opportunities.

We help schools to produce a green plan that helps them to reduce their energy use and be more environmentally friendly. Good for the school, great for the planet.

The School Green plan will also support the schools, journey on the Eco-Schools programme by highlighting practical improvement options that could be adopted by the Eco-Schools Council.

Our education team will work with our environmental consultants to produce a report with advice, timelines and future considerations.

Our services include:

  • audit of existing practices
  • consultation with staff and pupils
  • an easy to follow report
  • follow-up advice and support
