The SchooliP sustainability audit builds on NGA’s guidance for governing boards and the National Association of Environmental Education’s four Cs of Culture, Campus, Curriculum, and Community. This will help schools and trusts develop a truly whole organisation approach. It is great to be working with so many people and organisations supporting schools to do the very best they can to achieve Net Zero and help protect the planet.
" SchooliP is an effective way to manage your schools sustainability plans." |
NGA, NAEE and Derventio Education have come together to provide schools and trusts with a free online tool distributed within SchooliP (the #1 in Teacher Performance Management, CPD & Training and Self Evaluation tools) to help governing boards adopt and develop environmental sustainability as a strategic priority.
Environmental, governance and technical experts have come together to provide schools and trusts with a free online tool to help governing boards adopt and develop environmental sustainability as a strategic priority. The tool is based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, it’s designed to cover all aspects of school life and is organised into the 4Cs of Curriculum, Campus, Community and Culture. The tool consists of a series of questions and guidance to help schools and trusts interested in developing sustainability to ask themselves relevant questions and focus their efforts on pertinent actions. Having the tool online means it is easily accessible to all stakeholders, who can be viewers and/or contributors. Those having an input can answer the questions and add supporting comments and documents.
All stakeholders have a single view of the state of play in the form of overview dashboards, along with the ability to drill down into the detail of each question. When sufficient data is available, it will be possible to make comparisons such as previous submissions and averages across all schools. Another advantage of the tool is that the Sharing feature allows experts to share useful information with schools. In time, users may decide that the Sharing feature should be opened up to also allow extensive collaboration between schools, trusts and wider communities This would mean like-minded schools can share ideas and experiences directly.
The school sustainability portal is free to use for all schools - you can register with the portal here.
