  • To develop an approach to improving lights being turned off
  • To explore water saving devices for toilets
  • To attract further wildlife in the school grounds
  • To use our walk to school data to evaluate improvements made
  • To explore how healthy school lunches are
  • To encourage the use of water bottles in classes

  • To have another Eco day later in the year to raise awareness.

Eco Schools

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.
Our mission is to help make every school in the country 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.
Benefits of joining Eco-Schools include:

Currently Windhill21 has the Bronze Eco-Schools award. We are now looking to achieve further targets which will mean we will reach the Silver level. To do this we need to recruit a new team of Eco Warriors for this academic year. Please see Mr Wood for further details. The new team will be introduced to you in the next few weeks.
