Here at Rockmount, the staff, governors, pupils and parents also believe that it is extremely important that we become an Eco - School. Being an Eco - School empowers pupils, raises environmental awareness and improves the school environment. It will also engage the wider local community with the school.
The programme encourages pupils of all ages and abilities to work together to develop their knowledge and environmental awareness. Independent research into the Eco-Schools programme in England found evidence of the positive impact on pupils, including increased confidence, development of leadership skills, improved pupil well-being and behaviour and greater motivation at school.
We are currently working towards gaining the 'Green Flag' award.
