Why have an Eco-Code? The Eco-Code is a fun way of capturing the main objectives of the Eco-Schools Committee. It should be presented in a format that’s meaningful to pupils and the school community. It can be used to raise the profile of the Eco-Committee and the action plan targets, and should be reviewed regularly to ensure it remains relevant and recognised.

Key Criteria
- The Eco-Code should be developed by the pupils
- It should be revised, or at the very least reviewed each year
- The whole school must be made aware of the Eco-Code, and what it stands for
