ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy

As part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Routemap to 2030 the ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy has been developed with the help of pupils and staff across Education and Children’s Services.


The ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy Link.

The progress of Education and Children’s Services Sustainability Strategy can be tracked on Engagement HQ:


Click on the links contained in the ThingLink page to find out about:

  • Proposals for strategies around waste, energy and green spaces
  • Our ambitions to be achieved by 2025
  • How our strategy links to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Climate Ready Scotland – Second Scottish Climate Change Adaptation Programme and Scotland’s Performance Framework National Outcomes
  • A link to our Engagement Hub where we will be developing a space for sharing ideas, information, gathering views through surveys and engagement around sustainability and climate change issues


Aberdeenshire Council now considers the impact on sustainability as part of all decision-making. We record the carbon footprint of all council sites, including schools, and continue to look for ways to reduce this carbon footprint. We are keen to encourage all children and young people to add their ideas to the Ideas Wall in the pupil area to help progress our ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy.

World Mental Health Day – Support
October 7th, 2021 at 2:11 pm

Sunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day and with that in mind, the authority will be promoting local, national and internal support resources for people to connect with if they find themselves struggling. Today it is to raise awareness of a digital resource called Kooth.

This resource is a great tool to help support the younger generations.

Kooth is a free online counselling and emotional well-being support service providing young people aged 10-18 years in many areas across the UK with a safe and secure means of accessing support with their emotional health and wellbeing needs from a professional team of qualified counsellors, as well as providing access to many self-help tools and content.

Welcome to The Gordon Schools





For previous School Announcements please visit this page.



At The Gordon Schools we have recently renewed our Vision.

This guides our everyday actions and expectations and is a statement of what we are trying to be and do as a School.

An easy way to remember our Vision, is using the initial of our School – T G S





Is about treating one another positively, kindly and with respect. We are all a part of the School community, the Local Huntly community and beyond. Our actions here affect other local, national and international communities. We must consider what consequences our actions will have on others and on our environment, both locally and globally.



We need everyone to value and look after their health. This includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

TGS should be a happy place, with support for everyone to feel good about their health. We want you to develop confidence and resilience for life in and beyond School.



Success means being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. If you succeed with this then you will learn as well and achieve as much as you can. Have a growth mind-set – explore new things and aim for future successes! At TGS we want you to be proud of your achievements and successes and we will celebrate those with you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information – we will be happy to help.

Mr P Gaiter
The Gordon Schools, Huntly
