Esso SchoolWatch Survey Pack.
Learning through Landscape Trust, Winchester (England).
A survey packet designed for primary schools in the United Kingdom is provided to help schools establish site monitoring activities that help involve the entire school community in evaluating and maintaining school grounds. The packet helps the community collect information on how the grounds are used and by whom, how the grounds are maintained and whether they are in a good condition, and what image the grounds convey to those within and beyond the school community. The data collected can be used to manage sites effectively, provide basic information for site development, avoid destroying resources already acquired, recognize causes of problems, isolate features or practices that are unsafe, identify income-generating potential and possible savings, and avoid repetition of mistakes when undertaking site development. Concluding sections address analyzing and using survey information, curriculum links in surveying school grounds, an example of a site plan with special overlays, and lists of resources. (GR)
