The Eco- Schools Programme –
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
Hartburn’s Eco Mission –
Our mission is to help make our school more sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities. Each classroom displays an Eco Code created by the children themselves.
Hartburn Eco Warriors are in the process of following a seven-step process which will help them to address a variety of environmental themes, ranging from litter and waste to healthy living and biodiversity.
Our Hartburn Eco Warriors are the driving force behind Eco-Schools – they form and lead an Eco-Committee. They have recently carried out an audit to assess the environmental performance of the school. As a team they have created an action plan that will be implemented across the whole school.
Our Awards so far –
Our Eco Warriors have been working so hard and have already gained bronze and silver award! They will be working hard with Miss Connett to gain ‘Green Flag’ award within the next year!
