Green Flag Award and Patcham Infant School together with the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE)
Our school is an eco school and as part of a whole school initiative we wanted to be accredited `Green Flag’ status. This is awarded to schools that show a commitment to and implementation of the Eco-Schools process. Once have completed a certain amount of work towards our award we applied to FEE for the Green Flag. FEE incorporates `Keep Britain Tidy` under its umbrella of achievements Please see www.eco-schools.org.ukfor more details.
Why we are seeking status? We at Patcham Infant School believe that we are fortunate to enjoy a very beautiful rich environment to work and learn in. We aim to make the most of it, enrich it and make it more sustainable to all.
So how did we work towards the Green Flag status? The very first steps were to form an Action Group who are representatives of Year One, Year Two and from the parents, staff and governors.
