Parsons Down Partnership have begun their journey towards becoming an Eco-School. Eco-Schools is a global environmental programme with 19.5 million children - across 67 countries - taking part. It is a pupil led programme, run by an Eco-Committee comprised of children, teachers, support staff, governors and parents. There are ten Eco-Schools topics for our Eco-Committee to consider:



Global Citizenship

Healthy Living



School Grounds




In our first year, we will focus on three of these topics. The children in our Eco-Committee will decide which ones they would like to cover and how. It will be their job to take action as well as inform and involve the school community and wider public.


To find out more about our progress with Eco-Schools, please read our blog posts below.
