Congratulations On Passing Your Eco-Schools Green Flag!


Fantastic work Mrs A Ward!

We are very pleased to tell you that you and your Eco-Committee at Salvatorian RC College have been successful in meeting the requirements for the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award.

We reviewed your application and noted the following:

It is evident that young people in your school are aware of environmental issues and passionate about protecting our planet. Allowing young people to record meeting minutes is a great way of allowing them to really take ownership over their school’s environmental initiatives! Completing the Environmental Review allowed your Eco-Committee to recognise the positive changes that your school has already made and gain an appreciation of the future impacts that they can create. We took great pleasure in reading the insightful comments on your Environmental Review, they provided a wonderful insight into the discussions that took place whilst your Eco-Committee completed it. Your chosen projects in your Action Plan were based on children’s ideas and the areas they are most passionate about. This approach places them at the heart of your Eco-Schools work and will lead to increased engagement. We enjoyed reading about your plans to develop your outdoor Eco-area and to select litter-pickers! The projects developed for your topics are a great variety of activities that will make an immediate difference, whilst changing behaviours to create further impacts. The three curriculum examples provided are great examples of environmental education, they are practical and fun with a real-life context that is very relevant to pupils in your school. The curriculum examples provided impressively expand on the projects in your Action Plan, providing pupils with a deeper understanding of the eco-activities they are delivering. We enjoyed reading about your pupils efforts in writing to their MP on future energy concerns! This example clearly demonstrates that staff members in your school are willing to go above and beyond to include these important issues in pupil’s learning. Pass on a thank you to them from the Eco-Schools’ Team. Your Eco-Committee have used a wide variety of methods to inform their school community about their work including your school assemblies by your litter-picking group, this shows they take pride in their achievements and are working hard to involve and educate all around them. Your uploaded Eco-Board helped to bring your Eco-Schools application to life – it’s a real celebration of your eco-activity that will increase engagement from your school community. Your greatest success is a brilliant achievement. Your focus on recycling and saving energy has been a huge success. It’s clearly something that pupils will be proud of and leaves a great legacy to build upon! We love your collaborative approach to creating an Eco-Code, this approach has allowed young people to take ownership and create a final code that will be treasured by everyone at your school! Thank you so much for submitting such a terrific application. We have loved reading about your journey and are incredibly impressed by all you have achieved. We have no hesitation in awarding you an Eco-Schools Green Flag, congratulations!


As always THANK YOU very much for your hard work, we are so proud of all our schools and the collective achievements they have made to protect our planet for future generations. We look forward to working with Salvatorian RC College again next academic year to help you expand on your eco-actions and successes of this year.

Have a great summer break,

The Eco-Schools Team


Many thanks to everyone who helped achieve this, especially Mr A Templeton and the Eco-group, Mrs S Griffin and the coat collections, the year 7 litter pickers, the Art and DT departments for providing cross-curricular links, and the PTA uniform swaps.
