Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.

In Ysgol Ffordd Dyffryn the children are the driving force behind Eco-Schools – they lead the eco-committee and help carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of our school. Through consultation with the rest of the school and the wider community the pupils decide which environmental themes they want to address and how they are going to do it. Measuring and monitoring the progress provides the school with the evidence they need to celebrate their successes.

Reduce  Re-use  Recycle

This year’s team of Eco-Entrepreneurs have revised the Eco-code and mission. Pupils will strive to ‘Reduce, Re-use and Recycle’ and are very eager to work on their three agreed targets:

  1. Water
  2. Waste
  3. Biodiversity

Within this years actions, the team are looking to increase the number of ASD friendly green spaces around school, reduce use of water and promote habitats for wildlife working with local wildlife trusts.
