Westbury Leigh Primary school has been successful in being awarded its Green Eco-School Award. The whole school is working together to continue this important work on improving and protecting our environment both locally, and on a wider scale worldwide.
What does being an Eco-School mean?
The Eco-Schools programme follows a simple international Seven Step process that aims for a final Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. It is pupil-led; involves hands-on, real-world learning and gets the whole school and the wider community involved in exciting environmental projects. Our school has already achieved its Bronze Award and Silver Award . These steps provide recognition of the work done by our pupils and staff, and will provide steps towards their final Eco-Schools Green Flag.
The programme covers ten topics- Water, school grounds, transport, energy, global citizenship, biodiversity, healthy living, waste, litter and marine. Topics highlighted feature in the current bid
Schools must cover one topic for the Silver Award, three topics to gain a first Green Flag and five topics for Green Flag renewals, every two years.
