Curriculum - Eco Schools
Overview of the Eco Schools Programme
Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet.
For over 25 years, Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the simple Seven-Step framework in order to achieve the international Eco-Schools Green Flag.
Eco-Schools develops pupils’ skills, raises environmental awareness, improves the school environment and creates financial savings for schools as well as a whole host of other benefits.
Pheasey Park Farm Primary School and Early Years Centre achieved the Eco Schools Green Flag in 2017. Since then, we have successfully renewed our Green Flag twice, as renewal of the award is compulsory every two years. Our next Green Flag renewal is due in Spring 2022.

Meet the Eco Committee
Leila-Rose Ferguson Year 6
The Eco Code is our school environmental mission statement which reflects the topics that our Eco action plan is based on and demonstrates our school's commitment to being sustainable.
Every year, pupils throughout the school are set the challenge to create an updated Eco Code that reflects our school Eco actions, which they are informed about through key stage assemblies and the Eco display board. The Eco Committee then engage in discussion about all the entries and vote on which they believe to be the most relevant, effective Eco Code. The chosen Eco Code is displayed in prominent places around the school including classrooms, main Reception, staff room, corridors and the Library, to name but a few!
