Welcome to our Eco School Council page
Recently, as part of our School Council, we have started the journey to becoming an international, Green Flag Award Eco-School.
The programme is designed to raise environmental awareness amongst young people. In England it is run by the environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy. Internationally, the programme is the largest educational programme in the world, present in nearly 70 countries,with millions of children participating. Our school is now part of this global community working to create environmental change for the benefit of our children and future generations.
The Eco-Schools programme empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and can also lead to financial saving.
With the current situation we are all facing, this will help our School Council to have a clear focus for ways to improve and support our school. Our ‘Eco warriors’ will be given Eco-committee tasks to carry out, as well as playing an important role in providing a pupil voice in the running of Upton Infants School.
