Assessment, Achievement and Awards

Eco-Schools is an environmental education programme and is managed in England by the environmental charity , the anti-litter campaign for England. Eco-Schools England has the most Eco-Schools in the world, with 70% of all schools in England currently registered with the programme (that’s just shy of 17,000 schools).
The Eco-Schools International Programme was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) as a response to some of the needs identified at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development.
The Programme’s official start was in 1994, with support of Denmark, Germany, Greece and the United Kingdom.
Eco-Schools is now run in 53 countries around the world, linking more than 40,000 schools – from the UK to France and from Morocco to South Africa.
At Little Kingshill Combined School, we have continued to work tirelessly towards our eco goals and the pupils become more engaged every year. We have been part of the scheme since 2010, and have worked through the awards, from bronze to green. The awards are assessed biannually, and our third green award was received in April 2019.
As part of our work, we have developed the school grounds, creating an environmental garden and growing spaces for flowers and vegetables. Other areas of focus have been energy, reducing our carbon footprint by installing UPVC double glazed windows and doors throughout the whole school as well as solar panels.
We were amongst the first to be involved in Solar Schools, helping to put clean energy into classrooms all over the country, and raised £15,000 to install solar panel onto the hall roof.
