What is Eco Schools?
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
Eco-Schools is an award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important. Schools work towards gaining one of three internationally recognised awards – Bronze, Silver and the Green Flag award, which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity. Bronze and Silver are both self accredited and Green Flag is externally assessed by Keep Britain Tidy volunteers.
Two Rivers has gained the Bronze and Silver certificates and the prestigious Eco-School Green Flag Award. This award reflects all the hard work and effort everyone has put in.
Eco-Schools creates green behaviours in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities. What’s more, by addressing environmental issues in school and reducing waste, we’ll save money, which can be reinvested elsewhere.
Outdoor learning is a vital component in our approach enabling children to make the necessary connections between maintaining and enhancing their environment with a sustainable future.
Our children take part in weekly, termly and yearly activities which embed the habit of taking care of the environment from a very young age, and in doing so raise their understanding. Eco-Schools can fit into virtually all aspects of the curriculum and help to make learning, both inside and outside the classroom, fun and engaging.
