St Cleopas recently became one of only 1,415 schools in the U.K. to receive the prestigious Green Flag Award from Eco-Schools.
The Government in England wants every school to be a sustainable school by 2020. This is something that the staff and children are well on the way to achieving.

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. They felt that in our school 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 their school. Through consultation with the rest of the school and the wider community it is the pupils that decide which environmental themes they want to address and how they are going to do it.
Well done to everyone who has helped the ECO Team achieve this fantastic award.
