Good advice from Flobear .We are members of the RHS School Campaign. You work yourself through different levels and get freebies along the way (money when you get to level 3!!). Your school is also put on the country map with the level you are at denoted. If you access the site now, you could find out if there are any active schools in your area. They also give you a pack to run a 'Get your Grown Ups Day' when you can run a day where parents, staff can do some of the hard graft for you - we put together raised planters and planted them up in one afternoon.
It would be good if you could team up up with one of your secondary feeder schools - share local info, borrow equipment to get you started etc...visit the other schools for inspiration...We have also made contact with our local park and have helped plant bulbs/plants in the park.
