Eco Schools


We are very pleased to have been awarded the Eco Schools Green Flag award in 2022!


At St. Teresa’s, our vision is ‘to shape our children to become the leaders of tomorrow’ and we strive to help them fulfil this by participating in

the Eco-Schools Green Flag programme.  

This is an international initiative that

aims to rally and unite young people to

make realistic but dynamic change, creating

positive impacts for our planet now.  With

the support of the Eco-Schools programme,

we aspire to teach our pupils the skills and

knowledge to benefit and improve

our planet throughout their lifetimes.


The Eco-Schools programme consists of a seven-step framework, which has been designed to place young people in control of environmental actions in their school, local community and beyond.  These seven steps are the Eco-Committee, Environmental Review, Action Plan, Curriculum Links, Informing and Involving, Monitoring and Evaluation and the Eco Code.


There are ten environmental areas that comprise the Eco-Schools programme.  These topics are Biodiversity, Energy, Global Citizenship, Healthy Living, Litter, Marine, School grounds, Transport, Waste and Water.  Every year, the Eco-Committee must choose three of these topics as a focus for their environmental actions.  The Eco Committee is an elected group who, with the support of Mrs Kirton, the Deputy Head, and Ms Holder, the Eco-Coordinator, are responsible for running the Eco-Schools programme in our school.  The Eco Committee are also members of our School Council. This year, they have chosen Global Citizenship, School Grounds and Biodiversity as their three topic areas.
