Brambleside Community Primary School first registered with Eco-Schools in 2003 and were awarded their first green flag in 2005. Since then the prestigous green flag has been awarded every 2 years until 2011 when our first Eco-schools ambassador role was achieved. Following 2 years of environmental projects, linking with other schools, raising money for worthy charities and developing new activities and lessons to promote environmental education, this ambassador role was renewed for another 2 years. In 2014 12 Eco-Schools in England were awarded the ambassador status with Brambleside being appointed ‘Learning Outside The Classroom‘ as a specialism.
Eco-schools is an international award programme that engages children in fun, action-orientated learning in their local communities and beyond. Pupils are the driving force as they form an eco-committee and help to carry out an audit to assess the Environmental performance of the school. There are 9 Eco-Schools England topics – Energy, water, waste, biodiversity, healthy living, Global Citizenship, litter, transport and school grounds.
