The Green-Code is a statement of the objectives demonstrating the school’s commitment to environmentally friendly actions.
It should be negotiated by as many of the pupils and staff as possible and related to the action plan and curriculum work. The code should be displayed somewhere prominent and updated as new issues are addressed. It is important that pupils feel they have had involvement in developing this code, otherwise they will ignore it. Personal and social education periods offer a good place for discussing the values underlying a common Green-Code, and provide an opportunity to extend the discussion to personal codes and values. Alternatively, this could take place in tutor time, or in class. The Green-Code could be released to the local press and the general public.
