Congratulations to Oldfleet School - Eco Schools Green Flag Award



Congratulations!!!

Fantastic work, Ms Buitendam

We are very pleased to tell you that you and your Eco-Committee at Oldfleet Primary School have been awarded an Eco-Schools Green Flag.

We reviewed your application and noted the following:

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-Committee planned for delivery.

You’ve clearly embedded the ethos of the Eco-Schools programme far and wide in your school! We loved hearing about your involvement with Keep Britain Tidy, Children in Need, Nature Friendly Schools, Hull Young People's Parliament and the Local Library Service - well done! We love that your pupils have taken their great work beyond the school gates and into their 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!

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 it's punchy nature will definitely help it be processed by everyone passing by your Eco-Board. Congratulations to everyone for the great work you have managed to do, earning your Green Flag with Distinction. You should all be very proud of your work and the application you have submitted!
