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 whether you want an activity; lesson plan; presentation; fact sheet; template; survey or craft/DIY.

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 school’s 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.
