A total of 13 schools across Bristol have been awarded for their green behaviour.

They have received the ‘Green Flag’ award from the Eco-Schools initiative for their commitment to improving their local environment.

They include Hill Crest Primary School, Little Mead Primary Academy and Stroud High School.

To be recognised for an award, a school must establish an eco-committee made up of pupils from each year group.

They are in charge of finding out ways of improving their environment, such as addressing littering or cutting energy use and designing an action plan.

Currently, around 18,000 schools are part of the initiative, with more than 1,000 having achieved the award.
