How often do we need to change our Eco-Code
Once you have an Eco-Code, you do not need to stick with it forever. It is a requirement to renew it with every Green Flag renewa. as it should reflect the topics your school is currently working on. This also allows students to feel ownership over their Eco-Code.
How do we inform our school about the Eco-Code?
Your Eco-Code should be displayed on the Eco-Board, but to inform the whole school about it we recommend having it in different classrooms, halls and maybe even in the toilets if you are working on the Water Topic!
Who needs to know the Eco-Code?
Most of the students in your school should know the Eco-Code. It is also recommended that you share your school?s Eco-Code with the wider community – maybe on the footer of letters home or on your school’s website.
Where should we display our Eco-Code?
Wherever you can, but your Eco-Code must be displayed on your Eco-Board and various places around the school. Please remember to check with staff before putting up your Eco-Code around school.
What evidence do we need to provide for the Eco-Code step?
When our Green Flag Assessor visits they may ask various students what your school?s Eco-Code is (if they can not see it on display around school). When you upload a photograph of your Eco-Board in the final stages of your Green Flag application your Eco-Code should be clearly visible.
Why is it the last step?
The Eco-Code is the final step because it is the funnest step! It should reflect the work your Eco-Committee has carried out to achieve Green Flag status – its your celebration statement!
