Lockers Park has been awarded a coveted Eco-Schools Green Flag

Posted: 17th May 2023

Pupils at Lockers Park have earned an international accreditation this academic year, an Eco-Schools Green Flag with Distinction, recognising their amazing work in making the school more environmentally friendly and raising eco-awareness in fellow pupils. Achieving this accreditation demonstrates that the school has gone above and beyond to improve our local community and protect our planet, if everyone shared the same passion, determination, and dedication we’re sure the climate crisis would soon be a thing of the past.

The Eco-Schools programme was established in 1994 and is now delivered in more than 70 countries across the globe. More than 1 million pupils attended an Eco-School in England in 2022-23.

Pupils at Lockers Park first formed an Eco-Committee, then collaborated with Mr M Phillips to conduct an environmental review, assessing how eco-friendly their school is. They reviewed everything from biodiversity within their school grounds to how pupils and staff members travel to school. Building on their findings, pupils and Mr M Phillips then planned a year of action designed to advance the school’s green credentials, improve their local environment, and protect our planet.

Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “The Eco-Schools Green Flag award is an internationally recognised symbol of high environmental standards. The pupils and school staff that earn the award deserve immense credit for their hard work, determination, and creativity. Their passion for protecting our planet is an inspiration to us all.” To learn more about Eco-Schools head to www.eco-schools.org.uk
