Green World:Green Parson Street.

Parson Street Primary School has been selected to hold the prestigious role of Eco-Schools Ambassador, along with eight others schools across the country. Eco-Schools is the largest Education for Sustainability programme in the world and is run in England by Keep Britain Tidy. To date over 17,000 English schools are registered with the programme, with over 1,700 holding the International Eco-Schools Green Flag award.

Eco-Schools Ambassadors are expected to work above and beyond the expectations of the Green Flag award, going that extra mile to demonstrate that sustainability is core to the schools culture, that they show inspirational leadership and an initiative approach to working towards the Eco-Schools programme, as well as helping other schools to adopt the Eco-Schools framework.

How can we support you?

  • A buddy arrangement with your Eco/Green Committee – come and visit our children and see the work we do.
  • Mentoring support through the process of applying for and being approved as an Eco School.
  • Leadership support for school staff who are engaging in the programme.
  • Guidance regarding policies and procedures that support the Eco-Schools programme.
  • Curriculum planning – how can environmental work be integrated into your curriculum?
  • Action planning for improvement – how can your school make a real difference in terms of energy usage, cost savings and becoming environmentally sustainable.

This support is provided as part of our Eco Schools Ambassador role.
