At Buckingham Primary Academy, we are delighted to be embarking on our Eco-Schools journey.
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
For over 25 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag award.
Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.
As part of this journey, we have established an Eco-Committee made up of pupil representatives. The Eco-Committee will look at the following areas: Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy Living, Litter, Marine, School Grounds, Transport, Waste and Water.
The Eco-Committee meets regularly and undertakes school-wide Environmental Reviews.
Buckingham Primary Academy was awarded a Merit for their successful Eco-Journey during the 2022-2023 academic year.
