Pupils at Weald Community Primary School are delighted to have been awarded a Green
Flag Eco school award.
The Eco-Schools programme was established in 1994 and is now delivered in more than 70
countries across the globe. More than 1 million pupils attended an Eco-School in England in
Weald Primary School formed their Eco club last year which has been meeting once a week
to support their ambition to be a Green flag school. They conducted an environmental review,
assessing how eco-friendly their school is which reviewed everything from biodiversity
within the school grounds to how pupils and staff members travel to school.
Building on the findings, the school have planned a year of action designed to advance their
school’s green credentials, improve their local environment, and protect our planet.
Mr Pyle, headteacher of Weald Community Primary School, said about the award ” We are
very pleased with all the effort that has gone into achieving this award for the school, from
pupils past and present. It shows what passion and commitment for a good cause can do!”
Eco-Schools England Manager, Adam Flint, said: “The Eco-Schools Green Flag award is an
internationally recognised symbol of high environmental standards. The pupils and school
staff that earn the award deserve immense credit for their hard work, determination, and
creativity. Their passion for protecting our planet is an inspiration to us all.” To learn more
