Composting in schools

Staff and students alike can work together to make composting in school a success. Involving the whole school community will ensure that composting in school is a habit that is carried on as young people progress through school and will continue as new year groups become involved.

Composting in school helps to reduce the waste sent for disposal, engages young people with their outdoor environment, and can be used as a valuable tool when learning about mini-beasts, eco-systems and natural processes. It helps to save the planet and can help to save money.
