Sustainable schools

The younger generation are our future and giving then the skills to lead sustainable lifestyles is one of the most important tasks our schools are asked to fulfill. The Eco-Schools programme provides a simple framework to enable your school to analyse its operations and become more sustainable.

Pupil involvement is a key part of the ECO-Schools programme.  Having pupils engaged in the whole process including monitoring, action planning and decision-making leads to genuine ownership of the programme and an increase in their sense of responsibility for the school environment and local area.

Environmental Detectives

Our very own Environmental Detectives programme is designed to help young people understand sustainability.


Leicestershire County Council provides a service specially designed to support schools to reduce carbon emission, energy consumption and energy costs.

SCoRE (Schools Collaboration on Reducing Energy) provides schools with bespoke support, advice and guidance to undertake activities that reduce energy consumption.
