Once you have been awarded your Green Flag you will need to renew the award every two years thereafter.
To maintain your flag, you will need to show that you have continued the achievements of your initial application and built on them by integrating the new theme with your ‘Green-Schools’ programme, e.g. schools that have received the Green-Flag for their achievements on Waste and Litter should display that they have also integrated aspects of the Energy theme into their programme in their renewal application.
If the award is not renewed after a certain period of time, without valid reason, or a school ceases to actively participate in the programme they may be asked to take down their Green Flag. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis and every effort will be made to support schools who wish to renew the award.
