The green schools programme
 

Green-schools is also an award schemeĀ 

Any school using the guidelines given in this Handbook can adapt the programme to their needs. While the Green Flag award will be given to schools that complete all the essential elements of the Green-Schools programme, it should be remembered that the programme is flexible, and that different schools will find different routes to achieving Green-Schools status. The Green Flag award is now established as a well respected and recognised eco-label.
