The National Governance Association is delighted that environmental, governance and technical experts have come together to provide schools and trusts with a free online tool which supports governing boards adopting environmental sustainability as a strategic priority and school leaders developing a climate action plan.
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.
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 for, 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 submission and average across all schools.
Another advantage of the tool is that it allows for extensive collaboration across the school, trust and wider communities, this means like-minded schools can share ideas and experiences.
