When looking at your building and grounds you have to think about turning the whole fabric of your school into a place where pupils, staff, and the wider school community can learn about – and practice – sustainable living every day.

This might mean choosing building technologies or interior furnishings and equipment for their low environmental impact, or simply developing your grounds in a way that helps pupils learn about the natural world and sustainable living.*
