Eco-Schools Green Flag Award
The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning. Eco-Schools empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and also creates financial savings for schools. It engages the wider local community, links to the curriculum and can help deliver Ofsted requirements.
The Eco-Schools programme provides a unique opportunity that empowers pupils to lead change within their school and have a positive impact in their wider community. The programme encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to work together to develop their knowledge and environmental awareness. Independent research into the Eco-Schools programme in England found evidence of the positive impacts on pupils, including increased confidence, development of leaderships skills, improved pupil well-being and behaviour and greater motivation at school.
With the help of our community, parents, Green Team, pupils and staff Wyvil Primary School were able to secure the prestigious GREEN FLAG AWARD in the summer of 2019. At Wyvil we are very proud to hold this award as it represents true commitment to environmental education.
