Eco Schools – Award of 6th Green Flag

We were delighted to receive news of our successful application to re-new our Eco School status with an application for a 6th Green Flag. The feedback from our assessors was very positive and they offered no recommendations to improve our practice, which is very unusual.

 

I would like to acknowledge the work of Ms Bigg in driving forward this initiative, ably backed by the Eco Team, the working group and the wider staff.

Assessor Feedback

 

Your application for Green Flag renewal was comprehensive and joy to read. The use of Eco-schools themes as IDL topics as part of a whole-school approach to Global Citizenship is very encouraging. The measurable cultural shift achieved on litter and recognition by the community is a really important success. The student Eco-committee is clearly working well, linking all the activities. It is evident that there is a comprehensive whole school approach to Education for Sustainable Development. The Scottish Government outcomes for the UNDESD are clearly been met. The reduction in your carbon footprint from transport alone over the last four years is very impressive. It is gratifying to see your Eco-schools working contributing so strongly to developing the development of the Curriculum for Excellence. Thank you for providing so much quality evidence of your existing Eco-schools work. Congratulations on your well-deserved Green Flag Award.
