Do the curriculum links have to specifically relate to the Eco-Schools programme?
No, if you want to create lesson plans based on the Eco-Schools programme, brilliant, the programme lends itself well to this, however, any work linking to any our ten topics is fine.
Does our curriculum evidence have to be from the same topics we have in our Action Plan?
No, it can be from any of our ten topics.
How many pieces of evidence do we need?
You need to gather three pieces of curriculum evidence for your Eco-Schools Green Flag application.
How can we find this evidence?
If you follow the National Curriculum then it should be easy to find examples from the whole school where Eco-Schools and the National Curriculum overlap. An easy example of this is that it is mandatory to teach a foreign language in Key Stage 2 – this links perfectly with our Global Citizenship topic. You can also use our 100 Eco-Schools Lesson Ideas resource for inspiration.
Can all of our evidence be from the same class?
For your first Eco-Schools Green Flag, yes! For Eco-Schools Green Flag renewals, no, we would like to see evidence from different age groups. Why not try using one of the resources listed above to help you easily gather evidence from other year groups?
We have found our evidence, what next?
We would like you to display this evidence on your Eco-Board: you can do this by choosing one or two good examples of pupils’ work and photocopying them for display.
