Northmuir Primary School Learning for Sustainability

Within Scotland’s curriculum, Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is recognised as an entitlement for all learners. A recent international study showed that learners in Scotland are world-leading global citizens. (Scot Gov, 2021)

In partnership with the Daily Record, the Scottish Government have launched the Learning for Sustainability Awards. The Scottish Government has identified People as a key theme for the COP26 Summit (taking place in Glasgow this November) and has declared that it wants it to be the most inclusive COP summit ever to be held. This includes a strong focus on young people.

The Learning for Sustainability Awards help recognise the amazing achievements of Scotland’s people and the settings, schools and communities that have demonstrated passion and commitment to building a socially-just, sustainable and equitable world.

Northmuir Primary School are finalists in these fantastic awards, within the Leadership category!

We have put together a short video demonstrating some of the amazing work they have undertaken over the last year, including setting up a fruitful polytunnel for food growing, a pond area to encourage and increase biodiversity, and learning around climate activism, food waste, plastic waste and more!

We would like to say a huge WELL DONE to Northmuir Primary School for their committment to sustainability and send them a big thank you for their enthusiasm to work with us on developing and implementing fun, engaging, and innovative activities.
