Your Eco-Code should be your mission statement. It should demonstrate, in a clear and imaginative way, your school’s core values and commitment towards improving its environmental performance and striving towards a sustainable future.
The Eco-Code should list the main objectives of your Action Plan, covering real actions that pupils and staff intend to carry out. This task is also ideal to link into literacy curriculum work.
The Eco-Code should be displayed in every classroom and on the Eco-Schools notice board, in communal areas and in the staff room. The content of the Code should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it continues to reflect the school’s eco aims and targets as new issues are addressed.
It is vital that pupils feel they have had involvement in developing this code, as this will give them a greater sense of ownership and responsibility for the programme and its values.
Basically our Eco Code is the set of ecologically sound ‘rules and regulations’ our school chose to live by in the interests of the planet!
