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?
For your Green Flag application you briefly need to list where in the curriculum the three links are from. During your Green Flag Assessment visit our assessor will need to see evidence of this; so make sure to point it out as you show them around your school. Your Eco-Coordinator may also have some examples they want to share with the Assessor from their teaching files (and marking piles).
How can we find this evidence?
It should be easy to find examples from the whole school as to where Eco-Schools and the curriculum overlap. An easy example of this is that it is compulsory to teach a foreign language – this links perfectly with our Global Citizenship topic. But remember if in doubt, go to the Geography Department, they practically cover every Eco-Schools topic at some point!
Can all of our evidence be from the same class?
No, we would like to see evidence from different year groups and subjects please.
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 a few good examples maybe one from each member of the Eco-Committee (you should all be from different year groups for Step 1 criteria) and photocopying for display.
