Eco Schools


“Eco-Schools endeavours to extend learning beyond the classroom and develop responsible attitudes and commitment, both at home and in the wider community. Its participatory approach and combination of learning and action make it an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path to improving the environments of schools and their local communities, and of influencing the lives of young people, school staff, families, local authorities, NGOs, and all other bodies involved in this vitally important area of work.”


Here at Harberton we have been working hard to complete all the essential elements of the Eco Schools programme to achieve Green Flag Status. In order to achieve the Green Flag we have focused on one main topic: Waste and two minor topics: Outdoor Learning and Biodiversity.

Please visit the sub tabs under the Eco Schools heading on the left to find out about the Eco Code and hear some important messages about our main topic.
