Eco Schools

At Peel Park we are driven to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. In order to achieve this we are following an international award programme called ‘Eco-Schools’. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.

‘Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.’ 

(Eco-Schools)

Our focus is to address the nine Eco-School topics, these are: ENERGY, WATER BIODIVERSITY, SCHOOL GROUNDS HEALTHY LIVING TRANSPORT, LITTER, WASTE and GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP.
