Learning for Sustainability

Learning for Sustainability (LfS) is an approach to learning, life and work.  It enables learners, educators, schools and their wider communities to build a socially-just, sustainable and equitable society.  LfS is fully embedded in the General Teaching Council Scotland’s professional standards and is recognised as an entitlement for all learners. 

We aim for an effective whole school and community approach to LfS which weaves together global citizenship, sustainable development education, outdoor learning and children’s rights.  Our Brunstane curriculum, Building Resilience Programme and Pupil Parliament aim to create rich, real-life learning experiences.

We were awarded our 3rd Eco-Schools Scotland Green Flag Award in January. For more information on the Eco Schools Scotland programme click here:


Our children and staff completed an Environmental Review in April and used the results to select our 3 Eco-Schools topics for our new plans. Our action plan for our 4th Green Flag focuses on Biodiversity, Food and the Environment and Litter (which is a mandatory topic). You can view our action plans below, please note this is a working document and will be reviewed/updated on a regular basis.

Please be in touch if you can help us to achieve our aims. This may be to offer time, advice or resources – we appreciate and welcome support from our wider school community. You can phone the school on 0131 669 4498, email admin@brunstane.edin.sch.uk or tweet us @EcoBrunstane.
