ECO Schools Green Flag Award

ECO Schools Award

ECO Schools Award

On the 20th February an Eco Schools assessor came to Hampton Hargate Primary school to see if we had met the criteria to be awarded the Eco School Green Flag, which is the top Eco School award. We are very pleased to announce that we passed with flying colours and in the near future a Green Flag will be appearing outside our school.

To pass this award we had to choose from 3 of the 7 Eco Schools topics.  We chose Energy, School grounds work and Transport with a focus on our Power Down Fortnight and the great energy saving work that has continued since, the redevelopment of our field and the 2 pond areas and finally our vast ‘Bike it’ work which we have been carrying out since September to support the Transport topic. The assessor met with children from the Eco Warriors, Bike it Crew, Power Down Crew and the School Council. They answered his questions thoughtfully and were a real credit to the school. The assessor was very impressed and said it was clear we involved the children and that they were all very enthusiastic about the work we have been doing.
