The Sustainable School’s Whole School Approach and the Sustainable Schools Alliance (SSA) membership programme for schools is a project of SEEd and helps schools embed sustainability and learning for sustainability throughout the school. The SSA is a network of schools across the UK who are working towards a Whole School Approach and can apply for recognition of the work they do on an annual basis.
Any school in the UK can become a member of the SSA. Here are some examples of schools who have already joined…
- Charter East Dulwich School
- Wellington College
- Floreat Montague Park: “We are a new school interested in all ideas relating to sustainability. We would like to develop as a school with a sustainable culture; one where a sustainable approach is evident in all we do. At present we are working in the following areas: Food waste; Tree-planting; Active travel plan to reduce reliance of cars; Offering a vegan menu; Green energy; and Recycling.
- James Allens Girls School
- Cuckoo Hall Academy Trust
- Burntwood Primary School
- Stephen Perse Foundation
Some are at the beginning of their work, some are well on their way.
Membership is £100 per year. This gives you access to specialist resources and support, and the network. You will get the stories and ideas from other schools in the network, be able to share your news through the SEEd newsletterand website, and attend SEEd events at a discount.
