Significant Milestone Projects

ECO Team


The Polygon School is very proud to have their Eco-Schools Green Flag Award renewed in 2022, with a distinction.  This is the highest award available to schools which reflects; going above the Seven Step criteria, the dedication and the hard work the school and Eco-team put into making sure our school is as committed to all things green as possible.


Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journeys, providing guidance on how to make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.


Our Eco-team have completed this year's annual review and are now planning our plan for the next two years..
