Evidence of the impact of sustainable schools is supported by growing research, policy, and practitioner literature, in the main from the UK but also internationally. Multiple sources of evidence now show that being a sustainable school raises standards and enhances well-being. This is because sustainable schools engage young people in their learning therefore improving motivation and behaviour; they also promote healthy school environments and lifestyles. In addition, the evidence shows that sustainable schools advance community cohesion by making valuable connections between the school and its parents, carers and the wider community.
