Congratulations to Ings Primary School - Eco Schools Green Flag Award


We love your democratic and fair approach to appointing Eco-Committee members. It's great to see that other pupils played a part in the process. It was really great to read how your Environmental Review provided the basis for the projects in your Action Plan. It demonstrates a reflective and considered approach to your Eco-Schools work, this is a great skill that many adults can learn from! It was wonderful to see how completing your Environmental Review helped your Eco-Committee to spot gaps in your school's existing environmental activity. But equally important is that it helped you to recognise the great work that you were already doing. This helps to keep up the good activity whilst making you feel empowered to do different things. We love this! We love the range of activities that you and your Eco-Committees planned for delivery. You've clearly embedded the ethos of the Eco-Schools programme far and wide in your school! We have enjoyed hearing about how involved you have been with The Woodland Trust (tree planting). The RSPB, Keep Britain Tidy, Hull City Council, Fareshare and the Cash for Kids Charity - well done! We love that your pupils have taken their great work beyond the school gates and into thier homes and local community. This is a very challenging aspect of the Eco-Schools programme, so your Eco-Committee should be very proud of their successes in this area! We are delighted to hear that your students have had fun with their potato growing competition - well done! The parent quote is a great testament to the work that you are doing with your Eco-Committee, that they are taking their Eco-Schools work home with them and getting their families on board is something to be proud of. I hope you and your Eco-Committee take great pride in your achievements, everyone involved should be incredibly proud of the changes they have made! Your Eco-Code is really smart and concise. It's a great message and its punchy nature will definitely help it be processed by eveyone passing by your Eco-Board. Congratulations to everyone for the great work you have managed to do, earning your Green Flag. You should all be very proud of your work and the application you have submitted.
