Bumblebee-friendly Schools

To be completed by:


Time: - | Venue:


Bumblebee-friendly Schools introduces students, staff and the wider school community to bumblebees. The scheme encourages positive actions that will make schools a better place for bumblebees and other wild pollinators.

Schools complete a set of bumblebee-friendly actions and provide evidence to earn Bumblebee-friendly Schools accreditation.

Any school can participate, no matter its size or age group. Schools without access to a green space can still take part by using any small outdoor area that can be set aside. Please note there is a £30 application fee.

Through pollination, bumblebees and other pollinators ensure the production and availability of some of our most nutritious fruits and vegetable and underpin entire natural ecosystems. In the last century, changes to the way we manage our land have led to a huge decline in bumblebee numbers, with two species of bumblebee becoming extinct in the UK.

The good news is that small actions and changes to our local environments, including our schools, can create a genuine conservation impact for bumblebees, helping them to survive—and thrive!
