Leicester City Council has a dedicated Environmental Education Team based in the Energy and Sustainability Team, working with schools to help them become more sustainable in all that they do. We encourage schools to follow the Eco-Schools Programme.

Further information

As well as one to one support, schools are able to engage through half-termly #EcoTeachmeets, staff training, resource planning & workshops, an annual Eco-Schools conference & celebration event and keep up to date through a dedicated Twitter account, monthly eBulletins and termly newsletters. The Eco-Schools programme provides exciting opportunities for students in curriculum time as well as outside the classroom.

There are 10 areas that are covered in the Eco-Schools framework
  • Energy
  • Waste
  • Water
  • Litter
  • Global citizenship
  • Healthy living
  • Transport
  • School grounds
  • Biodiversity
  • Marine 

The Eco-Schools green flag award is part of Eco-Schools programme - this can be achieved at Merit and Distinction You can find out more on the Eco-Schools awards page.

Resources are available on the Eco-Schools website for Early Years, Primary and Secondary.
