Eco Schools

Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed those principles into the heart of the school life.  It is one of five environmental education programmes run internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). 

Green Flag Award

eco_schoolsWestfield Primary School are delighted to have been awarded a Green Flag again this year in October.  The Green Flag proudly waves at our school entrance for all to see.

The Eco-Schools Assessor spent time looking around the school and speaking to the pupils who form our Eco Team.  The following is an extract from the letter we received from Karyn Fullerton at Keep Britain Tidy:

 

“An outstanding school, with Eco-School topics embedded throughout. All the children were both knowledgeable about the topics and enthusiastic, with their ideas being listened to and acted on by supportive and forward thinking adults.  Well done to everyone and keep up the great work.”
