Support for other schools programmes
The materials support Eco-Schools, Every Child Matters outcomes and the National Framework for Sustainable Schools.
The government wants all schools to be sustainable schools by 2020 and in 2006 launched a National Framework that sets out the government’s aspirations.
The materials help you to support the following ‘doorways’ of the National Framework for Sustainable Schools.
|Purchasing & Waste||*||*||*||*||*||*|
|Buildings & Grounds||*||*||*||*|
|Local Well Being||*||*||*||*||*||*|
Using the materials to support Eco-Schools
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed sustainable principles into the heart of school life.
The materials, and the Project in particular, can feed into your Eco-Schools Action Plan and help you to address Eco-School topics of Litter, Waste and Global Perspectives.
Every Child Matters
The materials can also help you to deliver a range of Every Child Matters outcomes. As they participate in lessons, develop their understanding of recycling and use important personal and workplace skills, students can:
- enjoy and achieve by developing lifelong skills and by understanding the positive contribution they will make to the local and global environment
- make a positive contribution by taking action to recycle more, and encourage others, in school, at home and in their wider community
- achieve economic wellbeing by developing their Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills and working together in ways that will enhance their workplace skills.
