Sustainable Schools Agenda 2020

What is a Sustainable School?

A sustainable school is one which cares, which is aware and feels responsible for the environment, the community in which it is placed and appreciates the wider dimensions of the world.

Preparing Children for the future:

It will encourage an ethos of responsibility to ensure that the impact of the school is minimised whilst developing sustainable practices and ways of thinking that will stay with children throughout their lives.

They will leave school conscious and mindful of living a life which seeks wherever possible to appreciate and use the earth’s resources wisely.

They will be equipped to develop and maintain relationships that take account of the uniqueness of everyone and everything on the planet.
