Support for schools
Swale Green Schools welcome parents, guardians and governors and provides training and support to help reduce your carbon footprint.
The Swale Green Schools’ Forum provides an opportunity for schools to learn more about what they could be doing to reduce their carbon footprint, while sharing ideas teacher-to-teacher.
The Forum meetings are held quarterly – please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the next meeting. Parents, guardians and governors are more than welcome to contact.
