Eco Council

IMGP0271Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.


St. George’s has been an Eco-Schools Green Flag site for over 12 years and in our most recent assessment, in April 2017, the assessor commented, “This was a very enjoyable assessment and return to St. George’s; from the fabulous use of the school grounds to thoughtful projects in the classroom which were all joyfully linked by an enthusiastic staff and confident pupils. This school well deserves another Green Flag, well done to everyone”.

The ‘Green Dragons’ is our elected Eco council who ensure our Green Flag status continues.  They monitor the energy use in school and think of new ways the school can be more sustainable, enthusiastically communicating and coordinating their action plan with all the pupils and staff.

IMGP0693Our gardens, including a highly productive organic vegetable garden, to the front and rear of the school, are distinctive features maintained by parents and pupils.  Our outdoor areas are extremely important to us, providing excellent learning and recreational facilities for the children, as too is the education of global issues and links with other schools and communities around the world.
