Green Schools Trophy
CPRE Staffordshire runs an annual Green Schools award scheme. All Staffordshire schools are invited to showcase their conservation and environmental projects for a chance to win £50 cash and hold the CPRE Green Schools’ Trophy for a year.
We look for inspiring projects that contribute to the protection, conservation or improvement of the local environment. This could be through cutting down on single-use plastics, practical conservation work, creating wildlife habitats, promoting energy-saving or waste reduction/recycling, green transport schemes or any other original idea your school may come up with.
This year’s winning school is St Bartholomew’s CE Primary School in Longnor. The children at this small rural school make honey from their own beehives and learn about how pollination is a vital part of both food production and ecology. Last year’s winners, Kingsmead School in Hednesford, received the award for protecting and rescuing hedgehogs, repairing and improving its school pond, and creating a wildflower meadow.
