Our sustainability strategy has been informed by our Student Eco Council and the Greater Manchester environmental strategy. We wish to play an active role in raising awareness and in taking action to make positive changes for all of our global futures. We will actively support change in our community and work to enable the ambition of Manchester to become one of the Greenest Cities in Europe.
The aim of our Sustainability Strategy is:
To educate all members of our school community about the need for environmental and sustainability practices, ensuring that all can make a positive impact on environmental sustainability within the local and global community.
To define and measure the environmental impact of our schools’ actions and activities and to subsequently develop a set of targets to reduce any negative impact and costs.
To ensure that both staff and students are encouraged to play an active role in our school environmental and sustainability agenda.
To encourage behavioural changes and increase participation in environmental and sustainability issues.
According to the ‘Governors’ Guide to Sustainable Schools’ (DfES, 2007b), a sustainable school is one that has care as its central value: “care for oneself, care for each other (distant and near, as well as for future generations), care for the environment (from the school grounds to the planet)”.
The Chorlton High School Sustainability Strategy is the responsibility of all of our school community – as we aim to protect and strengthen our environment for the future of all.
