Find Resources

Resources to help with your Green-Schools programme are sorted into three categories: the theme you are working on, whether your school is primary or secondary and which of the seven steps you would like to focus on.

As with all school activities the Green-Schools programme should always be operated with Health & Safety considerations in mind. Schools should not undertake Green-Schools activities which contravene the schools Health & Safety procedures and policy. If there is any doubt of an activity, doing so it should be firstly checked with the person responsible for the school’s Health & Safety policy and procedures.

It also aims to ensure this message is fed back into the pupil’s home environment, thus reaching the wider population. Information on air pollution is given along with complementary activities. Monitoring the air quality around your school and other fieldwork form key parts of the toolkit.
