Since 2006, the Better Energy School Awards (previously the Total Green School Awards) have given teachers and their students the opportunity to study a huge range of environmental topics and are strongly linked with the National Curriculum for England and Wales and the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence.
Work carried out for the Total Green School Awards also perfectly complements work towards Eco Schools.
The Awards help to enable environmental issues to be taught in a cross-curricular way, so that subjects like Art, English, History, Mathematics and Home Economics could form the focus of your project in an equally valid way to the more obvious approached to be taken through Science, Technology and Geography.
What is more, the Awards help make learning fun!
Total is also sponsoring YPTE's lesson plans and funding the creation of some new science-based lesson plans for use in primary schools in 2019-20.
