The one thing to remember is that you are not alone on your journey! There are plenty of people who can support you. The following is a very short summary of places where you can go for ideas. There is a much extended list available on the Sustainable Schools website (address below):

General information

  • Sustainable schools website
    A good place to start gathering information. Among much which will be of interest it also includes further lists of organisations offering support.
  • Carbon Trust
    Has information specifically to support school leadership teams including a comprehensive list of case studies.

Local authority support

Your local authority should be able to help you on your sustainable journey. Many local authority departments as well as Children’s Services departments help schools better manage their resources.

Support from CABE

Green Day is an event designed to support teachers in their journey to creating a more sustainable school.
