Want your own school to use solar panels and be a green energy example to pupils? 10:10’s Esther Barlow explains how. We managed to involve a rather sceptical community, and everybody’s sort of joined together,” says Sam White. “There’s a lot more crossover now between the people in the community and the school … It’s brought people together.” White is a parent at Pendock Primary school in rural Worcestershire. Back in 2012 this tiny school of just 49 pupils was one of the first to sign up to 10:10’s Solar Schools project. They had an ambitious plan – to raise £9,000 to buy solar panels for their roof in just two terms.
