Broomlands Primary School

Kelso - Scottish Borders


Eco School


The Eco-Schools programme is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school action for the environment. It is a recognised award scheme that accredits schools who make a commitment to continuously improve their environmental performance. It is also a learning resource that raises awareness of environmental and sustainable development issues throughout activities linked to curricular areas.


The aim of our group will be to make environmental awareness and action central to the life and ethos of the school for both pupils and for staff, and to engage the wider community.  Members of the Eco-Committee will help our school to:


  • Improve the school's environment

  • Reduce litter and waste

  • Reduce energy and water use

  • Devise efficient ways of travelling to and from school

  • Promote healthy lifestyles

  • Encourage active citizenship

  • Build strong partnerships with a variety of community groups

  • Develop international and global links
