At SHC, we will be attempting to earn the Eco School - Bronze Award!
Eco-Schools is a student led programme that allows schools and the community to work together to create environmental projects.
To receive a bronze award, there are three steps that we need to take.
Step 1: The Eco-Committee
- Host an Eco-Committee meeting at least once every half-term.
- Have pupils share the responsibility with staff for organising and keeping a record of meetings.
- Get representation from parents, governors or senior management on the Eco-Committee.
- Ensure that the Eco-Committee representatives have communication to and from the Committee to the rest of the school.
Step 2: The Environmental Review
- A copy of the Environmental Review must be displayed on your Eco-Board and the results needs to be shared to the rest of the school.
Eco-Schools Ten Topics
Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy Living, Litter, Marine, School Grounds, Transport, Waste and Water.
Step 3: Action Plan
- The student representatives of the Eco-Committee will need to choose 3 Eco-Schools topics. Students then need to start leading the projects.
- They Eco-Committee will need to start planning. They need to decide on timescales, who is responsible for the projects and how each topic will be monitored and evaluated.
- The Eco-Committee will need to share the Action Plan with the rest of the school.
- Display a copy of the Action Plan on the Eco-Board.
Once this has been completed we will be able to receive our Bronze Award!
