What can schools do?

  • Demand safer routes to school

  • Go Fair Trade...
  • Work with your local authority to make sure you are properly supported
good progress
Good progress...
  • 40% of schools doing some aspect of sustainable schools
  • NCSL regards it as a leadership priority
  • KS3 curriculum significant step forward
  • DCSF carbon management strategy leading edge
  • Voluntary schemes popular
  • Evidence of what works improving (eg Sustrans Bike It)
  • Wide range of guidance and tools

But...
  • Not all teachers have the skills to contribute professionally
  • Ofsted response positive but tentative to date.
  • Primary review good, but sustainability insufficiently visible.
  • School procurement skills weak and sustainability not considered, yet huge purchasing power of sector.
  • We want children to walk and cycle, but parents rightly worried about safety.
  • Whole life costing not always applied in capital spend.
  • Waste management in schools poor or superficial: >70% food waste avoidable.
  • Too few schools do tree-planting, wildlife gardening or food growing despite significant benefits (learning, health, shade).
