Eco Team

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.

Once registered, schools follow a simple seven-step process which helps them to address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity.

Nine Topics

The Eco-Schools programme is focused on nine key topics. These are:

School grounds
Healthy living
Global citizenship

For further information about Eco Schools, follow the link below.

This section gives you all the details about the three Eco-Schools award levels - Bronze, Silver and Green Flag. The award criteria are closely linked to the Eco-Schools framework, so our Getting Started pages are a good section to read. 

You can also find information about applying to be an Eco-Schools Ambassador as well as details on our Eco-Schools Energy award.
