The Prime Minister visited St Mary’s Catholic Primary School to celebrate its achievement of holding Eco School status for 10 years.
Theresa May attended the Cookham Road school on Friday, September 23, to raise its fifth green flag, one of the top accolades given out by the international organisation Eco Schools.
Mrs May, also stayed to speak to the school’s Eco Council about how sustainability is a high profile concern for the government.
To achieve green flag status, there is a list of tough criteria which are independently assessed. These includes regular meetings of the eco council that is led mainly by the pupils, and to have sustainability within at least three areas of the curriculum.
Also visiting the school was Allison Ogden-Newton, CEO of Keep Britain Tidy, who congratulated the children for their hard work.
Elaine Hurrell, sustainability coordinator at St Mary’s, said: “A fantastic day was had by all.”
