At Allerton CE Primary, we work towards
a world where we love, learn and flourish.

In order for us to flourish our world has to flourish and so we work towards a more beautiful world, a world of thriving biodiversity.

Our school made the decision to work towards Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation and we were awarded the Green Flag for the first time in 2023. You can find out more on the Eco-Schools website here:

With the world beginning to experience the effects of climate change; different species of plant and animals becoming extinct every day; and micro-plastics being found in the most remote locations on Earth – now, is the time to educate ourselves and future generations about the impact of our actions on the planet we call home.

The Eco-Schools programme does this through providing a simple seven-step framework that has been designed to raise awareness of environmental issues whilst empowering young people to make a positive difference by taking a lead on environmental actions and projects in their school and local community.

Within Eco-Schools’ simple framework young people have the freedom to decide on the environmental issues they would like to tackle, represented by ten Eco-Schools topics. Once young people have chosen their topics, they decide what actions they would like to take and how they are going to involve their school and community.

The ten topics we can choose from are:

  • Biodiversity – maintaining a high level of plant, insect and animal life locally and globally
  • Energy – reducing energy use and investigating greener energy sources
  • Global Citizenship – taking an active role in our community and making our planet more peaceful, sustainable and fair
  • Healthy Living – addressing our, and our planet’s health. These two issues are intrinsically linked!
  • Litter – reducing litter, which harms wildlife and costs millions to clear every year
  • Marine – protecting and conserving water-based ecosystems
  • School Grounds – improving School Grounds for students, staff, plants, insects and animals
  • Transport – promoting and encouraging Sustainable Transport
  • Waste – refusing, reducing, reusing, repairing, recycling
  • Water – valuing and preserving our most important natural resource.
