Inspecting the Environmental Dimension of Schools: A Checklist for School Inspectors.
Jones, Nick, Ed.
This checklist was produced to assist in the inspection and reporting process of the environmental dimension of schools. The term 'environmental dimension' is used to include both the curriculum and the context within which it is delivered. The checklist outlines the main features of the environmental dimension and makes some suggestions as to where in the inspection framework they could be reported. The checklist includes: (1) planned opportunities for out-of-classroom learning; (2) creative use of the school buildings and grounds; (3) study of environmental issues in the curriculum; and (4) the involvement of pupils in environmental decision-making.
