Eco at Rivelin - FACTS
Our school has recently been awarded our Green flag for the second time. The whole school has taken on all our Eco goals and gone above and beyond. Staff members and children are all fully aware of our Eco code and Eco goals that were agreed upon by our Eco warriors.
The school has an Eco-Committee that meets at least once every half term. Pupils take significant responsibility for running the committee. The Eco-Committee includes a parent and/or governor representative.
The Eco-Committee has completed an Environmental Review covering the Eco-Schools nine topics and green procurement policy topics. The results have been recorded and pupils were involved in carrying out the review. Results of the review have been discussed by the Eco-Committee and communicated with the whole school.
The Eco-Committee has produced a detailed Action Plan. The plan contains timescales, who is responsible and how eco work will be monitored and evaluated. The Eco-Committee has shared the Action Plan with the rest of the school and is displayed.
The school has a prominent, designated notice board, detailing Eco-Schools activities. The Eco-Committee regularly communicates Eco-Schools activities to the whole school and wider community (eg. via assemblies and newsletters)
The school has an agreed, adopted and displayed Eco-Code. The Eco-Code is displayed on the Eco-Schools notice board and in all classrooms. The Eco-Code is known and understood by the majority of pupils and staff.
