Plastic Clever Schools:  Level 1
Group 12

Thanks for registering!


Welcome to Plastic Clever Schools! We’re so pleased to have you on-board.

As you have registered, you are now on Level 1 – Inspire and have access to a bunch of resources to help you progress.

Welcome video

Use the pupil workbook, worksheets and factsheets we have created (found below) as much or as little as you want – feel free to inspire your pupils and school community in any way you like, but remember, to complete this level you need to submit a piece of evidence for each of the 3 actions listed below.

Level 1 - Inspire: actions

To complete Level 1 - Inspire we'd like you to:
  • Raise awareness about your mission to become a Plastic Clever School
  • Hold a litter pick at your school (and log what you find)
  • Make a short video (< 3minutes long) about why you want to become a Plastic Clever School
Then what?

Whenever you have completed an action, we'd like you to upload your evidence, so that's:

  1. A photo (.jpg or .png) of you giving an assembly on Plastic Pollution, its impact on animals and the planet, and how you are going to become a Plastic Clever school.


  2. A photo (.jpg or .png) of your litter pick event (and please remember to log the litter collected on the KAP map/app).

  3. A  short video file (.mp4 or .mov) of some pupils explaining why you are becoming a Plastic Clever school.

* If you're stuck with what to send as evidence, take a look at the Display board to see what other schools have done.

Progressing onto Level 2 - Investigate

When we have received your submitted evidence for Level 1 - Inspire, we will look at it, verify it and then send you an email saying you have advanced onto Level 2 - Investigate.

You'll know this has happened because your map icon will change to show you are working on Level 2 - Investigate, and any evidence you 'ticked' you wanted to share will be visible on the Display page.

Need more help?

Not sure how to upload evidence - no problem at all,  please see our HELP page.
